While KDE Frameworks 5 was just released this week, there's already new features and functionality sought after for future revisions of this modularized set of next-gen KDE libraries.

Covered in yesterday's KF5 update meeting were many changes/features still being desired by KDE developers. Among the highlights of future work include:

- Ensuring there is proper tooling and it's easy for developers to get started for developing applications on KDE Frameworks 5.

- Work on porting KF5 to Android.

- Windows and Mac OS X support effectively in KWindowSystem and to place Wayland support within KWindowSystem too.

- A single app installer is being worked on for Windows of KF5 applications.

- There's a desire for improved KF5 documentation.

- Grammar checking support in Sonnet is desired along with auto-correction support.
