VALIDATED UPDATES

We release important updates only after we’ve tested them for your hardware. We work with KDE, Kubuntu, Ubuntu, and other teams to help fix issues too. Actions include submitting and tracking bugs, testing and reporting, creating feature proposals, developing code changes, and even assembling kernel patches.

The Focus Team performs validation in good faith to deliver better and more reliable software; however, this cannot change the Terms of Use of any software package. Please see the Terms and Conditions page for instructions to locate the terms for each package.
