+KDE-5_16.02 is meant only to be installed on top of Slackware -current and
it will *replace* any version of KDE 4 you might have installed!
What is the NEWS in this batch of updates:
-- Frameworks 5.18.0 is an enhancement release.
- See https://www.kde.org/announcements/kde-frameworks-5.18.0.php
- Most visible fix is that the annoying "I18N_PLURAL_ARGUMENT_MISSING" text
- in several notifications is gone.
- I moved the 'bluez-qt' package into the Frameworks directory where it belongs
- (previous release it was mistakenly created in the Plasma directory).
-- Plasma 5.5.3 is a bugfix release of the 5.5 series.
- See https://www.kde.org/announcements/plasma-5.5.3.php .
- With PulseAudio added to Slackware, I was now able to create a package for
- 'plasma-pa' which provides a system tray plasmoid for volume control using
- I re-added the old kde-wallpapers of KDE Applications and placed the package
- in the 'plasma-extra' directory.
-- Applications 15.12.1 provides stability updates for the 15.12 release, see

+ released recently as a new separate tarball.
+ * I also added 'ktp-call-ui' which is scheduled to be included with

+ in telepathy. I used a git source snapshot to give you guys a preview.
+All in all, nothing spectacular. Hopefully just a more stable and pleasant
+experience all around.
