    Is it possible to change the orientation of the Spectacle UI? The older KSnapshot used a top-bottom layout, but Spectacle uses a left-right one.

      Plasma and kwin desperately need some attention especially on Wayland. I do not see the necessary improvements there and often enough bugs do not get addressed timely. Sure UI changes and improvements are nice, but it only is nice to have.

        R41N3R Maybe they should join forces with mutter. They got plenty of developers.

          Looks like the next DebianXFCE is born. And I thought we were finally rid of him.

            sa666666 Have you looked at the numbers? Mutter got a big team.

            Speaking about xfce. The xfce founder Olivier Fourdan now works on ... mutter.

            Last commit: this weekend.

              A UI overhaul to the KDE Information Center's Energy page.
              This didn't show anything for ages (months) with openSUSE TW.

                This reports are from Visual Design Group, an effort to get better UX on Plasma and KDE apps. This is not the full development from KDE team.

                For kwin you can see what is been happening here: https://phabricator.kde.org/project/board/98/
                For plasma on wayland here: https://phabricator.kde.org/tag/plasma_on_wayland/

                  I really hope the Wayland initiative gets enough votes. Wayland feels buttery smooth, but the bugs let it down. I've got window focus issues up the kazoo, pixelation with kscreen-doctor scaling, occasional shell crashes, and there's a ton of quirks such as no wacom support, no window previews, etc.
