The KDE neon distribution is an Ubuntu-based project which features the latest software from the KDE project, particularly the KDE Plasma desktop environment. Jonathan Riddell has announced that KDE neon will transition from using Ubuntu's Unbiquity system installer to the distribution-neutral Calamares installer. "It's been a long standing wish of KDE neon to switch to the Calamares installer. Calamares is a distro independent installer used by various projects such as Netrunner and Tanglu. It's written in Qt and KDE Frameworks and has modules in C++ or Python. Today I've switched the Developer Unstable edition to Calamares and it looks to work pretty nicely." Some of the changes the Calamares installer will bring with it are mentioned in Riddell's blog post.
