Expected news for Dolphin and other KDE Apps

Dolphin is probably the most complete file manager in the Linux world. And it seems that for KDE developers, still not enough. A list of enhancements and new features to be implemented in Dolphin as well as some fixes in other applications in KDE version 5.18 has recently been released.

What's New in Dolphin

Now when you click and hold the forward and backward buttons, a list of accessed directories will be displayed. Something similar to what happens in browsers.

The Locations panel, located on the left side of Dolphin, now replaces the old recently saved panel. Which, ironically, did not display files saved for a very short period of time.

In Dolphin settings you will be able to choose from all possible options for working with executable files.

Implementations in other KDE apps

Kate and Okular software, including their versions of the Windows Store (which we already talked about in this article) just received a bug fix that caused them to display horizontal lines on the screen when running on fractional scale resolution monitors.

Bug when using Konsole integrated panels (KDE terminal emulator) in Kate and other apps when using two Hi-DPI displays.

The system settings page now has a more fractional scalable interface.

The Okular document viewer now remembers zoom, sidebar and view settings individually for each document.

Gwenview and Spectacle now have sliders to adjust the saving quality of JPEG images.

Plasma version 5.18 will be released only in February. However, some of the implementations for KDE Apps will be available to users in December. The exact day has not yet been revealed.

Are you looking forward to any of these features in KDE? Or are you waiting for something that has not yet been announced? Tell us in the comments.
