It's been a busy start to September for the KDE project and is now under its soft feature freeze for Plasma 5.23.

This past week saw a lot of fixes and other work to the KDE stack. KDE developer Nate Graham continues doing a wonderful job summing up the KDE development contributions on a weekly basis with some of his highlights for the past week being:

- Support for deleting branches with Kate's Git integration.

- Konsole 21.08.2 will fix the issue of Konsole being very slow to close a t ab when something is written at the prompt.

- Under the KDE Plasma Wayland session when the virtual keyboard is temporarily disabled, it will now stay disabled on the lock screen too.

- A fix in the Plasma Wayland session for multi-head setups driven by an AMD GPU and Intel integrated graphics where the displays driven by the Intel integrated graphics would stay stuck at the log-in screen.

- Another fix for the Plasma Wayland session is shadows for dialogs/notifications/OSDs no longer often being broken when using a left-edge panel.

There are also many other fixes, UI improvements, and other enhancements with now hitting the soft feature freeze for Plasma 5.23.
