- Okular now better deals with password protected documents and various other document handling improvements.
- Improved connection handling around MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) USB devices.
- The Sony PlayStation DualShock 3 Wireless Controllers and other non-standard connected Bluetooth devices will now appear within KDE's Bluetooth applet.
- Snap apps no longer appear as mounted volumes within the Places panels.
- The Battery & Brightness applet will turn into just a brightness applet now for systems not having any battery.
- Various other fixes and refinements.
