Even with summertime approaching KDE developers remain very busy further enhancing the desktop stack and continued efforts around Qt6 porting and the Plasma 6.0 desktop.

Some of the achievements made in the past week that were highlighted today by KDE developer Nate Graham include:

- Plasma 6.0 will support the Night Color feature when running on Wayland with a NVIDIA GPU. NVIDIA's driver required a specialized approach compared to the Gamma LUT feature handling with the Intel and AMD Linux drivers.

- KRunner should have improved search results for 2 and 3 character strings.

- The file search page within KDE System Settings has received a major visual overhaul.

- Under Plasma Wayland some blurred and transparent Breeze-themed context menus no longer sometimes exhibit visual glitches.

- Fixing the file and folder thumbnail cache handling when operating on an encrypted home directory.

More details on the KDE improvements for the week via this blog post by KDE developer Nate Graham providing his weekly development summary.
