With Plasma 6.0 aiming for an early February release, more of the KDE developer attention is turning to bug fixing.

KDE developer Nate Graham is out with his usual weekly development recap of interesting changes for the week. This week much of the notable work is around KDE Plasma 6.0 bug fixing, including for a number of KDE Wayland bugs now being resolved. Some of the notable KDE changes this week include:

- Fixing an "infamous" issue of panels visually freezing in the Plasma Wayland session when using a non-Intel GPU with the basic Qt Qucik render loop and Task Manager previews enabled.

- Fixing various cursor glitches and brokenness when using rotated screens in the Plasma Wayland session on a GPU with hardware cursors support.

- Reduced resource usage in Qt Quick apps that have mnemonics.

- Fixing a bug that could cause auto-started apps with system tray icons to sometimes not show their system tray icons.

- The Gwenview image viewer now displays images more correctly when using fractional scaling under Plasma Wayland.

- Various other bug fixes.
