KDE developers had another busy summertime week adding more features to their open-source desktop environment.

This past week of KDE development wasn't the most exciting in recent time, but there were a number of useful additions and fixes worth mentioning. KDE developer Nate Graham once again did a splendid job concisely summarizing all of the interesting KDE developments for the week. Some of this week's KDE work included:

- The Dolphin file manager has a dedicated "Selection Mode" for making it easier to select items from a single-click setting or touchscreen. This feature is coming with Dolphin 22.12 for improving file selection.

- A full-screen mode has been introduced for the Elisa music player.

- Support for generating preview image thumbnails for .arw RAW image files.

- Support for launching executable files from file searches in Kicker, Kickoff, Overview, and similar places. There will be a "open or execute?" dialog shown.

- Restoring touch scrolling support for Kickoff.

- Various other bug fixes.

More details on these KDE changes for the week over on Nate's blog.
