KDE Connect 2.0 Planning For Big Improvements
Albert Vaca shared that he's received NLnet Foundation grant funding to work full-time on KDE Connect this year. The focus will be on updating the KDE Connect protocol and mobile apps to modern standards.
With this work toward KDE Connect 2.0 the pillars of development will be on greater reliability, security, and accessibility. Among the specifics will be adding a multicast DNS (mDNS) back-end for KDE Connect on all supported devices, a full security audit of KDE Connect later this year, and reviewing the accessibility of their software as they work toward migrating to the Qt6 tool-kit and more.
More details on the KDE Connect 2.0 planning via Vaca's blog.
