KDE updated to 5.18.1!

Post by msdobrescu » Thu Feb 27, 2020 16:59

Hello everybody!

Wow! So soon released and have it! Thank you team for the effort!

It works OK for me:

Operating System: Gentoo Linux
KDE Plasma Version: 5.18.1
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.67.0
Qt Version: 5.14.1
Kernel Version: 5.4.0-sabayon
OS Type: 64-bit
Processors: 8 × Intel® Core™ i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz
Memory: 23,5 GiB of RAM

I see some differences already:
- Firefox scrolls smoothly
- My Logitech mouse scrolls fast again (it was very slow after the previous upgrade)
- The desktop is rendered slightly different, the colours look more vivid, maybe a little more black.
- The digital clock lost its background! This would good as option for the entire widgets set but it looks like a bug as it can't render a background and seems to stretch the figures to the widget area, as it lost the border (if it had one...).
- Generally, KDE looks faster in reaction, but seems to ignore the lost focus event in some regards, mainly the start menu remains open even though I was writing inhere, the desktop customization was ended, but the widgets panel remained open until I have closed it from the X button.
- Dolphin asks for closing confirmation at shutdown (the KDE is set to restore the session).

That's all for now, I'll be back if something worths to mention.

Regards and a BIG THANK YOU!
