KDE --
KDE developers remain very active with improving this open-source desktop environment even amid the coronavirus pandemic.

KDE developer Nate Graham is out with another weekly summary of all the accomplishments for this open-source community over the past week. Some of the highlights for this week in the KDE world include:

- The Dolphin file manager and Konsole terminal now have a "copy location" menu item.

- HiDPI scale factor fixes for various non-default task switchers.

- Speed improvements for KRunner.

- Restoring a regression in Dolphin for being able to execute script files with spaces in the filename or path.

- A fix for minimizing windows to the correct location in the task managers when PLASMA_USE_QT_SCALING=1 is set.

- The system settings screen locking page has been rewritten in QML.
