Just browsed through https://pointieststick.com/ and there are some very cool features coming in Plasma 5.18.
GTK apps will now be configured to automatically follow KDE theme settings. Yay! This was sometimes a real PITA.
Multiple terminals open in one Konsole window a la tmux.
System Tray applet for controlling the Night color feature. This looks like it can natively replace Redshift which I currently use.
Rename files from the context menu in the open/save dialogs. Nice. I believe this is an old lost feature now returning.
Now if only Elisa would implement ReplayGain I could be tempted to use it as no.1 music player. It's shaping up very nicely otherwise.
Plasma 5.18 has just been released as beta and hopefully it appears in Sid quickly. It is the new LTS release.

Excellent.
i would prefer to wait some more weeks and go to 5.18 instead of 5.17 and wait another 2 years... but lets see, what happens.

There is also KDE Neon and KaOS, which offer the latest Plasma right when it is released or even before (in the case of KDE Neon).

@Devil: Can we use KDE Neon in SId/ Siduction? Is This possible or is it strictly connected to Kubuntu?

KDE Neon is a distribution by itself, even though it does not want to be called that.

@lanzi - and packagingwise there is no common nominator to debian packaging - the only thing i'm citizize in Neon. Neon was the chance to unify debian and ubuntu KDE packaging - only one guy ... nuf said. Not my friend

I remember the split...
It is how it is... so lets hope for better support in the future.
