KDE developer Nate Graham is out with his weekly development recap one day early in highlighting the most recent improvements and new capabilities to this open-source desktop environment.

Some of the KDE highlights for the past week include continued Wayland improvements as well as this week seeing a lot of file manager fixes/improvements.

- Dolphin can now show thumbnails for files/folders on encrypted file-systems.

- With Plasma 5.19, when changing the system colors they are immediately reflected for GTK3 programs now without needing to restart those apps.

- Support for non-integer font sizes within the system settings fonts.

- KDE Frameworks 5.70 brings support to various applications for viewing The Gimp's XCF file format.

- Many other Dolphin file manager bug fixes.

- Logging out on Wayland will no longer crash KWin.
