As the end of the summer nears and KDE's Akademy conference approaches, development is busy as ever on this open-source desktop environment.

Some of the KDE development highlights for the past week include:

- The Kate text editor's search-and-replace regular expression matching now has an integrated regex builder/helper.

- Fixes around KDE System Settings' management of GTK configuration files that should address bad font rendering and other problems.

- Spectacle's rectangular region mode now works properly on Wayland multi-screen setups.

- Various crash fixes to different applications.

- A UI overhaul to the KDE Information Center's Energy page.
