KDE Now Supports Fractional Scaling On Wayland
Beginning with KDE Plasma 5.17, the desktop on Wayland now supports fractional scaling for a better HiDPI experience with KDE on this X11 alternative. Fractional scaling is about scaling the UI elements on a non-integer scale. Some of the other improvements that hit this week just ahead of their Akademy 2019 conference included:
- A warning/prompt to make executable files not currently set with their executable bit set when double clicking on them.
- Undoing trashing files on the desktop now works properly.
- Various Dolphin file management improvements.
Various other fixes and enhancements as outlined in this blog post by KDE developer Nate Graham.
