KDE Usability & Productivity: Week 70

Hold on to your hats, folks, because this week’s Usability & Productivity report is OVERFLOWING WITH AWESOMENESS! Let’s jump right in:

New Features

Bugfixes & Performance Improvements

User Interface Improvements

Next week, your name could be in this list! Not sure how? Just ask! I’ve helped mentor a number of new contributors recently and I’d love to help you, too! You can also check out https://community.kde.org/Get_Involved, and find out how you can help be a part of something that really matters. You don’t have to already be a programmer. I wasn’t when I got started. Try it, you’ll like it! We don’t bite!

If you find KDE software useful, consider making a donation to the KDE e.V. foundation.

    1. Yes, but more is always appreciated! If you want to help, install KDE Neon Testing or Unstable edition, or another distro that provides pre-release builds.


  1. Wow! Tons of improvements in notification area! I love that progress bar which is showing in notification box and indicates the download process. You guys are awesome! Thank you so much!

  2. An absolutely fantastic set of improvements! The only one I’m a little unhappy with – if I drag and drop, I assume a perfect copy of an image – not sure I like the potential for silent compression as I see dragging as something separate from saving.


    1. Spectacle’s drag-and-drop feature was always intended to be yet another way to save an image. If you want a lossless uncompressed image, simply make sure you have Spectacle configured to save in such a file format such as PNG, as it is by default.


  3. Another terrific week and Sunday to the KDE folks.

    A huge revamp of the Notification system, really nice, Plasma 5.16 just gets better and better every week. It really pains me that the images of the Kai’s work can’t be seen, either here on WordPress.com or at the original pointstick domain. Please Nate, check it that out, because i tried to follow the link, but it looks like Kai deleted that post and redone on May, instead of April.

    Thank you very much to Nate & everyone else who make all these tremendous software possible.

    Bests to all mentioned above ^^.


    1. Thanks!

      Yes, i reloaded now to reply you and the images load nice now.

      Everything fine now.

      Bests Nate ^^.
