Netrunner Desktop 16.09 “Avalon” is the full Desktop Version version based on the same stack as Netrunner Core.
As both share the same underlying technology, it features the same KDE Plasma, Frameworks and KDE Application packages on Debian Stable.

Please note that while we have chosen the same tested base versions as Netrunner Core, we also provide backports repositories which include the Plasma 5.8.2 release, Frameworks 5.27, and many more.
