- Touch gesture improvements were merged for handling the edge-swipe gesture with KWin and other features for Plasma 5.25.
- Plasma 5.25 will fix an issue where the more images you've added to your wallpaper settings, the the slower it is logging into Plasma.
- When sharing a Samba folder, there is now a folder permission helper window to help ensure the correct file/folder permissions are set.
- KRunner-powered searches are now case-insensitive.
- Correcting cursor/click positioning when running Plasma Wayland session within a virtual machine.
