- Links in files open within Kate are now clickable.

- Dolphin is now more informative about what to do instead of running the file browser within sudo.

- Improved scrolling with the Task Manager and Pager widgets.

- Those with a touchscreen can now press-and-hold to open a context menu for system tray icons.
