Plasma 2 Technology Preview demonstrates the current development status. The Plasma 2 user interfaces are built using QML and run on top of a fully hardware accelerated graphics stack using Qt5, QtQuick 2 and an OpenGL(-ES) scenegraph. Plasma 2 is a converged workspace shell that can run and switch between user interfaces for different formfactors, and makes the workspace adaptable to a given target device.

Plasma 2 is not a complete rewrite; it's a port to a new graphics system (a fully hardware accelerated OpenGL(ES) scenegraph).

Interesting R&D desktop but unusable for production. Very high CPU usage, high RAM usage, very unstable until 4.8.X (later are unstable but semi-usable).

I find it rather strange that I've been using an unusable desktop both privately and professionally since around version 4.2.
I didn't know I couldn't use it.
