    I love these reports. It shows all the great work devs do for this project, and at the same time the way they respond to feedback.

      There's a new update of qbittorrent (for my linux iso collection) on my windows machine. It says that they have semi-experimental qt6 version. Can't wait to see kde pick this up

        Hopefully 5.24 gets LTS status and openSUSE leap 15.4 adopts it.

        No comments please about adding latest Qt and KDE from repos, something usually breaks or causes dependency issues elsewhere.

        Keep up the good work Nate.

          This is great, it actually feels like the KDE project is starting to take itself seriously.

          I was never a fan of KDE, I always wanted that to change, now I'm actually optimistic that it will.

            Actually one reason I stopped using KDE was the fact that they never responded to bug reports I submitted (the other reason being how often the desktop broke after major updates.) The Gnome folks immediately fixed every single bug I reported.

              Could you link some of your reports to GNOME? Just curious, not bad intentions

                It took months / years to fix the memory leak in Gnome Shell, with Gnome developers denying it all the time

                  Which would be noteworthy improvements that would happen by switching to Qt6?I really hope Qt6 will only get then picked up by KDE when the transition is without any noticeable regression to the user. If that point isn't in the near future, so be it. Still lots of improvements possible without Qt6, it's not like devs would be bored.

                    Wow. This is despite the fact that the Gnome project is rife with bug reports and feature requests which takes years to resolve, not the mention a crazy amount of bug reports they've closed as WONTFIX. I'd love to see the bug reports you've filed. This sounds way too good to be true.
