Key developers of KDE's Plasma team met last month in Stuttgart. More details on this Plasma developer meeting have now come to light.

KDE Plasma developers continue eyeing Flatpak, Snap, and AppImage for possible next-generation packaging solutions. The developers also discussed better browser integration within Plasma to have native notifications and download progress, better multimedia handling, and more. Another new feature discussed was touchpad gestures support to control the window manager.

Those working on the KDE Plasma Mobile effort are also preparing to release a new image of Plasma Mobile for the Google Nexus 5X smartphone.

More highlights from their Stuttgart meeting can be found via dot.kde.org.
