KDE developers part of the Visual Design Group (VDG) who are meeting in Randa, Switzerland right now have made more progress on beautifying the KDE desktop.

The KDE VDG members at Randa have now made all Oxygen icons available in the Breeze theme in time for Plasma 5.4.2, a Human Interface Guideline for KDE mobile applications will be available soon for Plasma Mobile, the KCM for desktop search was reworked, and there are now fixes for all icon-related bugs. Plasma 5.4.2 should be a good monthly point release from the icon perspective.
