    Sigh.

    Folks, you don't even really know what Konqueror really is, and are spending a lot of effort fighting about this or that, none of which really applies.

    Let's recap:

    I think this is a point worth highlighting, btw: During the KDE 3->4 transition, we stopped the world for *several years* between the last 3.x feature release and 4.0. This time around we kept...

    ^ About the temple icon, we've actually had the same discussion. I'd expect it to be replaced later. It's one of those bottleneck/fell-through-the-cracks/dropped-the-ball deals - launcher icon...

    TBH I actually don't know, I have to defer to folks who worked on KWallet bits there - try catching apachelogger on Freenode e.g.

    99% of Plasma 5 is QML on Qt Quick 2 (and thus rendered through OpenGL), including settings UIs, which use Qt Quick Controls now. On platforms that support it properly we now have dedicated render...

    The Kubuntu team was a big aid during development by producing weekly snapshot ISOs in their "Neon 5" project; last week's image should be quite close to what's in the 5.0 tag. Note that a dev distro...

    We still have big plans there :).

    This development cycle was a huge amount of work - I'd estimate we rewrote about 80% of the workspace in the end. And yet actually went quite fast. Back in...
