KDE Makes It Easier To Set Environment Variables, Fixes Vertically-Arranged Displays
KDE developer Nate Graham is out with his usual weekly development summary to highlight all of the changes over the past seven days to this open-source desktop environment. This week's code churn isn't nearly as exciting as some of the prior weeks, but still things are advancing in the KDE world. As a reminder, Plasma 5.27 is expected to be the last Plasma 5 feature release before moving to Plasma 6 with Qt6. Some of this week's KDE highlights include:
- KMenuEdit as the KDE Menu Editor now allows easily setting environment variables for when opening applications. The properties dialog UI makes it easier to now set particular environment variables for when launching given applications.
- Vertically-arranged monitors on the KDE Plasma desktop no longer cause a one pixel overlap, which led to various "weirdness" issues.
- Various user-interface improvements.
- Various bug fixes.
