Did you reboot after upgrading?
Nothing is easy as it looks.

Yes, it´s a kde (plasma) thing, on lxqt DT right clic works ok,
btw, in plasma, in file manager or main menu, right clic (contextual menu) works OK, it's just on desktop and "taskbar" that it does not

This is not about the right click. but about KDE

In a day or two maybe also coming to KDE, it hit unstable a bit ago - this was mentioned on Planet Debian

http://perezmeyer.blogspot.ca/2016/07/upcoming-kdepim-changes-in-unstable.html

A running commentary of how it is playing out in unstable.

LXQT unaffected. 

peace out.

Paxmark1, that means that I (we) just have to "wait out" futher ugrades in testing repos and "right click" on the "desktop" should be back?  ::)

Right click, I do not know, I'm on lxqt.  My not very educated guess on the kdepim in general is that it is a balancing act, what portions of kde to let forward, and what to wait on.   Hopefully most of the problems will be found as it has started landing in unstable, but some bugs will probably get through if you use KDE for your contacts, email, etc. 

 The right click is probably not due to the kdepim but another portion of the basics of KDE.  I haven't seen anything on #debian-next.  Peace out.
