    All the changes seem really important and I will test KDiplay and Disman, if it works well I will replace Kscreen as of its many shortcomings. It would be great to provide the systemd service for Disman so that it works independent from the desktop environment.

    I can't wait to try it out. Hopefully there are not that many bugs still alive until its first stable release and that it is widely available in many distributions (easy to install).

    Well fork me running. Great news.

    Maybe the integration in other sessions than Plasma could be improved to even make setting up this single call at startup unnecessary. Should Disman for example install a systemd unit file executing this call by default? I would be interested in feedback in this regard in particular from distributions. What do they prefer?
    Well, I'm not a distribution, but I say yes since damn near all Plasma based Linux distributions use systemd. That is if we're discussing Disman in context with a Plasma install. But to play it safe, I'd make a disman-systemd package since the Linux Plasma systemd Venn diagram is basically O, but meta distributions and BSD either don't run systemd or have a choice of init systems so forcing systemd as a hard dependency onto Disman and/or KDisplay isn't the best of ideas, IMHO.

    Now I gotta set a reminder for October 13.

    Nice. I hope it will also add Vulkan rendering, adaptive sync and kmail / subsurface clipping issues fixes.
