    I'm a long time KDE fan, but I just cannot see in what world improving fuse mounts handling is a more urgent matter than being able to scale your screens independently.

      Different people work on different things.

        If you regularly work with files on remote locations in non-KDE apps and don't have multiple screens with different pixel densities (or you use Wayland where the feature is already implemented), then FUSE mounts are definitely more important. If you have multiple screens with different pixel densities and don't use the Wayland session and never work with files on remote locations in non-KDE apps, then clearly the per-screen scale factor feature is more important to you. If this describes you and you'd like to see this feature reach completion sooner rather than later, please feel free to help out with patch testing and development work!

          It's the other way around for me. I either use 2 identical monitors on my desktop or no external monitors on my laptop, thus I have no use for independent scaling. On the other hand I rely a lot on remote locations, so it would be nice seeing KIO finally catching up with GVFS.

            One major feature that's missing is brightness control. It's not available except when KDE detects a laptop.

                Also, still waiting for Debian to upload newer Plasma. Something is seriously wrong that it was delayed for so long: https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/plasma-desktop

                  Ugh, I feel like if you want the newest packages Debian probably isn't the distro for you.

                    Delays normally shouldn't happen unless there is some major blocker. So this is an exception, not something to expect. But I'm not sure what exactly is the problem. I tried asking KDE Debian developers, but no one responded.
