      Why do you say this ? In the video there is nothing to suggest that they have eliminated window control on the title panel.

        The only feature I was waiting for doesn't work - the Wayland session with the Nvidia proprietary driver (430.26).

            I personally prefer GTK environments such as Budgie, however this is certainly impressive.
            I wish there were something like this, just closer to GTK design guidelines (not adhering to them, though).

              Finally! touchpad work perfectly under Wayland! it was the only thing that kept me from using Wayland session!!
              I`m so happy!!

              Edit: huge memory leak on kde_wayland process!

                I'll have to check out if Copy&Paste (Middle Mouse button now works under Wayland) works, and if Wayland comes correctly back from a "sleep" state.
                So far - the latter always forces me to power-cycle the box.

                  this is 5.12 lts, this options have been removed no more button ordering for titlebar. Or at least in the latest beta that was released before final.

                    Boo, they've still got the non-KDE related start button. They show the KDE logo at the start & the KDE logo lower right during the video, but no KDE logo is particularly visible on the desktop environment itself. The start menu button would be an obvious place to put it would it not? Does the arrow pointing to the right with three dots actually mean something I've missed reading about?

                    Edit: KDE is awesome in general, congrats & thanks to all involved in getting another release out!
