Some longstanding issues were resolved this week in KDE land that will be to the benefit of many users.

KDE this week saw fixes and improvements including:

- Support for configuring the scrolling speed for mice and touchpads on Wayland with libinput.

- Support for searching with Baloo based on file creation dates and photo exposure times.

- Dolphin's terminal panel while browsing a remote location will finally work, assuming kio-fuse is present.

- Support for connecting to Samba shares on a workgroup having a space in the name.

- Gwenview no longer hangs when viewing a folder with a large number of images and is now also more performant in such conditions.

- Hot-plugging displays using a docking station on Wayland is now working for Plasma 5.19.
