The upcoming KDE Plasma 5.23 release is said to be packing several new features and enhancements. Late Friday night, famous KDE developer Nate Graham on his personal blog unveiled the first massive change in the upcoming release.
It’s not been too long since KDE Plasma 5.22 was released into software repositories of numerous popular GNU/Linux distro. And, now we got the news about the KDE community already working on the next huge release, KDE Plasma 5.23.
The members of the KDE Community (KDE Contributors) are currently working on KDE Plasma 5.23. The upcoming KDE release will offer users a more beautiful Plasma desktop and immersive experience. It will include an updated Breeze theme with a new, beautiful style for buttons, radio buttons, checkboxes, menu items, sliders, etc.
Besides offering a more Elegant Plasma Experience, the upcoming KDE will also be more bug-free. The Breeze theme style also fixes some old styling issues for the controls such as sliders becoming invisible when located on a selected list item, and the “default button” of a dialog not being very visually clear.
The work on the latest Breeze theme style was implemented by developer Jan Blackquil, in accordance with the mockups/ trials made by Manuel Jesus de la Fuente and other members of the KDE VDG. The work will be debuting in the forthcoming KDE Plasma 5.23 release coming later this year.
Developer Nate Graham taking about the upcoming release,
There is a lot of time left to tweak the final appearance as needed, but overall I think it’s really nice and I hope you’re excited about it as I am.
The KDE Plasma 5.23 will bring several other new features and enhancements like faster Windows Rules page in System Settings while utilizing several Window rules.
While utilizing quite a lot of window rules, the System Settings Window Rules page is now way faster to load and display (Ismael Asensio, Plasma 5.23).
