The KDE Project has been released today, thanks to KDE Frameworks 5.98, as the latest update to this open-source software suite, which includes a collection of over 80 add-on libraries to Qt, which provides commonly needed functionality for most KDE applications.
KDE Frameworks 5.98 is now available with additional capabilities for your favorite KDE apps and the KDE Plasma desktop environment, starting with a support for relative paths in the path bars of various KDE apps, such as Dolphin and Gwenview, as well as the ability to generate thumbnail previews for.arw RAW image files.
A addition to the program, which includes support for converting mouse-based programs, including integration of multi- cursors with Kate and other KTextEditor applications, as well as support for the Kate text editor to allow font customization in the Print dialog, and the ability to clear the Command Bars history.
On top of that, KDE Frameworks 5.98 is increasing the Get New [thing] windows to provide assistance for animated GIF images, which can be used for previewing effects, such as the recently added Burn My Windows KWin effect.
As well as KDE Frameworks 5.98 increase file transfer speeds in all KDE applications that use KIO, especially for NFS (Network File System) transfers, there are also usual bug fixes and performance improvements.
A random freeze issue in Kirigami-based applications and views that utilize the Common FormLayout component when designing certain fonts, font sizes, content sizes, and window sizes, as well as the global shortcuts, has been reported. The company is now capable of launching apps that define command-line arguments in the Exec= keys of their.desktop files.
The KDE Frameworks 5.98 release has over 200 minor modifications, so check out the whole changelog for additional reading. Likewise, if you are considering the latest KDE Plasma desktop environment, I highly recommend that you update the new KDE Frameworks packages as soon as they arrive in your GNU/Linux distribution.
