    Well, Plasma 5.22.3 is out now and it's still not available for wayland.

    I found the headline confusingly vague, because KDE 4.x already had this in two different places:
    1. KWin's Window Rules allows you to specify "Remember" as a policy for a specific window's geometry and I think this might have been present back in the KDE 3.x series when I came to Linux back around 2002 or 2003.
    2. QWidget has had saveGeometry and restoreGeometry calls since Qt 4.2, which make it trivial for an application to remember its own window positions under a platform like X11 which allows applications to move their windows around.
    A quick glance (I have to get going) over the linked bugzilla bug suggests they're basically making the KDE application boilerplate call KConfig versions of the latter functions.

    That said, I do share the concern of the one commenter that I might have to do something like writing a bunch of Window Rules to "Position: Force: Under Mouse" to get the old behaviour back where I want it.

    Here's hoping they remember the position when an app crashes, too.

    Yeah, it's one of the more annoying things about having to use MS Windows at work: that stupid remember your last position and try to reopen there misfeature (firefox does this in an annoyingly innacurate manner, too). It's not like I was planning to use KDE in any case, but here's another reason.

    2 or 3 decades too late?

    It was this one, I think https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=42284. I remember it too! Hope wine-wayland will be followed up soon in mainline too.

    Looking forward to get this window positioning soon in Plasma Wayland :-)
