Linux Mint KDE runs KDE 5.6 to LTS 5.8 Greeeaaatt! I like LTS.
But support for 5.8 ends next year. What then? Does KDE get a back port upgrade? Does Mint take on LTS support what happens? Do we have to upgrade to a later rendering of Mint, like 5.12? Given I use Mint KDE for my business across a wad of laptops now I kinda like settling on one version. I remember that Mint 13 ran on 4.8 forever but backports were not enabled by default back then.

Thanks. Sooo tired. Been getting my Visa renewed. Typing in a hotel in between sleep.The last point release of the KDE Plasma 5.8 LTS desktop environment will be KDE Plasma 5.8.9 LTS, which is expected to land in six months from the moment of writing this story, on April 10, 2018, marking the end of life of KDE Plasma 5.8 LTS. But, until then, you'll be able to upgrade to a newer LTS release, KDE Plasma 5.12.
