KDE --
There are two noteworthy pieces of KDE news as the weekend comes to an end.

First up, KDE developer Ragnar Thomsen has shifted his focus from systemd-kcm as the KDE configuration module for managing systemd into its own application: SystemdGenie. SystemdGenie is systemd-kcm turned into its own full-fledged Qt application. With morphing it into its own application, SystemdGenie offers more functionality and more UI options than being a KDE KCM module.

SystemdGenie allows for graphically managing systemd units, control of logind sessions, easy editing of unit files, and more. SystemdGenie is still in its early stages but those interested in learning more can read this blog post.

Separately, in other KDE news this weekend, KDE Partition Manager 3.0 was released. KDE Partition Manager 3.0 and KPMcore 3.0 now supports LVM-on-LUKS and LUKS-on-LVM, improved LVM logical volume management, support for online resizing on capable file-systems, and better support for sudo. There have also been various fixes and other enhancements. More details on KDE Partition Manager 3.0 via this blog post.
