KDE has kicked off the new month with some interesting improvements.

KDE developer Nate Graham continues in his weekly summaries highlighting the improvements to this open-source desktop environment. Among the strides made this week include:

- Annotations support within Spectacle.

- The System Settings Bluetooth pages have been merged into a new QML-based page.

- Better speed and performance of generating thumbnail previews for files and folders. This Dolphin 20.12 improvement is made by avoiding extra work really not needed for thumbnail creation.

- Konsole is much faster at launching. This optimization is made thanks to Qt changes.

- Various other fixes and UI improvements.
