RX590 drivers, and Kubuntu 19.04

Just switched from Windows to KDE Flavored Ubuntu, disco dingo. The computer AMD was built new, including the Radeon RX590 sapphire NITRO+ video card. The card works out of the box within the games I play, however there are some things I need the drivers for.


Drivers do exist, but for an earlier version of Ubuntu 18.04.02. These drivers however do NOT work with the newer version of the OS. When I rolled the dice and tried them, on reboot we get black screen, and have to re image to a prior state before the drivers were installed.


My questions before I roll back the OS, what are the plans for the newer versions of Ubuntu? Is there a standard time frame that these are developed after the release of an OS?


No biggie here, just curious.
