The KaOS project develops a rolling release distribution which focuses on providing a polished experience with the KDE Plasma desktop environment. The project's latest status update, mentions a number of changes coming to the distribution, including changes to the default look and the availability of new packages in the project's repositories. One of the big changes though involves the Linux kernel: "The biggest change to announce is one that is being tested with the Linux-next kernel. This kernel has moved to the hardened patch set, which provides an improved implementation of Address Space Layout Randomization for userspace processes. Linux-hardened started after Grsecurity was no longer available as an open source option and is a supplement to upstream kernel hardening work by the Kernel Self Protection Project. See the Linux ASLR comparison for more information. Testing is going well, so expect the next stable kernel to move to hardened too. The plan is to have this happening in early September and with that, a new ISO will be released.
