    Things I would like to see:
    • Wayland, Wayland, Wayland improvements.
    • WireGuard support in NetworkManager.
    • JavaScript ES6 class in template that generates code in gnome-shell-extension-tool.
    • Flatpak support for Web (Epiphany).
    • Further improvements to gitg.
    • Wayland support for Synaptic (package manager).
    Please, speed improvements and no weird stalls or crashes are more important.

And mind you: this is on Solus, which is very, very optimized.

    You are right... No idea where my mind was at, obviously it is September.

    'Only' 1GB? KDE after boot uses about 460MB. It's probably thanks to C++. It seems higher level languages are usually crap.
