    That's a lot of regressions, I personally reported two of them during beta phase. Somehow no one noticed my reports until 5.19 shipped and people started creating duplicates en masse. What's the point of beta release then?

      In Plasma 5.19.1 Wayland the clipboard doesn't work which made me switch back to X11 after an hour of work.

      The other issues were tolerable: like mouse pointer glitches (it tends to thicken or turn into a black rectangle).

        KRunner also has an "arch: " shortcut for searching the Arch Linux Wiki.
        Ahahahaha!
        But nice addition.

            Yeah, Kontact was fixed already and that came to openSUSE Tumbleweed, but still has no battery (it looks like was fixed, but hasn't came yet). 5.19 was one of the most harsh releases, TBH.

              What a shame. The KDE community isnt able to get a clipboard working? In 2020.

                You know very well there's a big difference between "doesn't work - there's a confirmed bug reported on this" and "doesn't work - my distro or my own settings broke something, somewhere".
                That said, last I looked at KDE Plasma Wayland, when I moved a window from one monitor to the other, Plasma decided two swap the monitors. There's clearly (a lot of) work left.

                  5.18.7?! I thought 5.18.6 was not out yet?

                  (also why has 5.18.6 been delayed by 2 months?)

                    Alexmitter In this case you probably got as many regressions as “fixes”.
