KDE developers this week at Randa have ben working on improvements for KDE applications on Windows.

KDE on Windows hasn't received too much attention recently and they've abandoned the concept of having a single KDE installer for Windows, but work on individual programs (and installers) for Windows has continued. Single application installers are their path forward for shipping KDE programs on Windows, among making other improvements.

Among the KDE programs currently offering Windows support are Digikam, Kate, Krita, and Marble while other KDE components continue to be ported over and packaged up for installers.

KDE is also working on continuous integration testing for KDE on Windows and other improvements. More details on the latest KDE for Windows work can be found via this blog post by Kevin Funk and this community.kde.org page.
