KDE had a busy final week to August.

From Nate Graham's continued excellent write-ups on the weekly changes to KDE Plasma / Applications / Frameworks, ending out August were:

- KDE Applications 19.12 to bring a new "Recently Used" implementation accessible by Dolphin and to be offered via Kicker, Kickoff, Dashboard, and other components. This new "recentlyused:/" implementation allows for filtering based upon activity / agent / MIME type to better select the recently used files/folders.

- KDE Discover has restored support for showing application reviews.

- Kate and other KTextEditor software will strip off Windows-style new-line characters from pasted text.

- A fix for a common crash to the Baloo file indexing service.

- Various user interface improvements.
