KDE --
Now that KDE Plasma 5.3 was released this week, KDE developers are starting to plan out and work on the new material intended for KDE Plasma 5.4.

KDE Plasma 5.4 is planned for release in August and there's a lot more features and new functionality this release is aspiring towards.


Among the work in progress for KDE Plasma 5.4 is continuing to port Plasma over to Wayland, creating a new volume widget, per-activity favorites in Kickoff, windows drag and drop in the activity switcher.

Other work includes improving locale settings, porting Baloo to KDE Frameworks 5, coming up with a new wallpaper, finishing the GT3 Breeze theme, redesigning the user-interface to the system settings, and global storage of favorite applications.

More details on the KDE Plasma 5.4 feature planning can be found via the freshly updated information at todo.kde.org.
