KDE Year End 2014 Fundraiser
As we approach the end of the year we begin the season of giving. What would suit the holiday better than giving to the entire world through the KDE Year End 2014 fundraiser?
Here is a unique way to give back to KDE allowing us to keep giving free software to humankind.
By participating in this fundraiser, you'll be part of the improvements we'll put into our educational software, so kids can have better tools for school; our office suite, so we have the best tools for the workplace; and our desktop so we can all experience a fun and productive experience when interacting with our computers.
Donating to KDE is not for you, it is for the entire world.
KDE releases Plasma 5.1
KDE Plasma 5.1 sports a wide variety of improvements, leading to greater stability, better performance and new and improved features. Thanks to the feedback of the community, KDE developers were able to package a large number of fixes and enhancements into this release, among which more complete and higher quality artwork following the new-in-5.0 Breeze style, re-addition of popular features such as the Icon Tasks taskswitcher and improved stability and performance.
Those travelling regularly will enjoy better support for time zones in the panel's clock, while those staying at home a revamped clipboard manager, allowing you to easily get at your past clipboard's content. The Breeze widget style is now also available for Qt4-based applications, leading to greater consistency across applications. The work to support Wayland as display server for Plasma is still ongoing, with improved, but not complete support in 5.1. Changes throughout many default components improve accessibility for visually impaired users by adding support for screenreaders and improved keyboard navigation.
Aside from the visual improvements and the work on features, the focus of this release lies also on stability and performance improvements, with over 180 bugs resolved since 5.0 in the shell alone.Show all 10 replies
KDE releases beta of Plasma 5.1
Put your testing hats on, Plasma 5.1 has a beta release. The second version of Plasma 5 is due out in under two weeks and now is your chance to test it for bugs which have crept in. It features a bunch of missing features which have been added back such as the much requested icon only task bar.
“can you drop plasma 5 on top of sc4? or do you need to get frameworks and related also going as the desktop?"
I don't understand the question... Plasma 5 is the desktop. And Plasma 5 requires Frameworks 5.
There's nothing stopping you from running a Plasma 5 session and then running KDElibs4.x-based applications on top. Except maybe your distribution's packaging, which may install to /opt or just require 4.x to be uninstalled. But that would be a packaging issue.
