This month sees a plethora of bugfix releases. While we all might like new features, we know that people love when mistakes and crashes get tidied up and solved too!

New releases 🔗︎

KDevelop 5.5 🔗︎

The big release this month comes from KDevelop 5.5, the IDE that makes writing programs in C++, Python and PHP easier. We have fixed a bunch of bugs and tidied up a lot of KDevelop’s code. We added Lambda init captures in C++, configurable predefined checkset selections are now in for Clazy-tidy and Clang, and look-ahead completion now tries harder. PHP gets PHP 7.4’s typed properties and support was added for array of type and class constant visibility. In Python, support has now been added for Python 3.8.

KDevelop is available from your Linux distro or as an AppImage.

Zanshin 0.5.71 🔗︎

Zanshin is our TODO list tracker which integrates with Kontact. Recent releases of Kontact had broken Zanshin and users were left not knowing what tasks to carry out next. But this month, a release was made to get it working again. We can now all easily find the tasks that we need to get on with!

Incoming 🔗︎

Keysmith is a two-factor code generator for Plasma Mobile and Plasma Desktop that uses oath-toolkit. The user interface is written in the Kirigami, making it slick on any size of screen. Expect releases soon.

Chocolatey 🔗︎


Chocolatey

Chocolatey is a package manager for the Windows operating system. Chocolatey deals with installing and updating all the software on the system and can make the life smoother for Windows users.

KDE has an account on Chocolatey and you can install Digikam, Krita, KDevelop and Kate through it. Installation is very easy: All you have to do is choco install kdevelop and Chocolatey will do the rest. Chocolatey maintainers have high standards so you can be sure the packages are tested and secure.

If you are a KDE app maintainer, do consider getting your app added, and if you’re a large Windows rollout manager, do consider this for your installs.

Website Updates 🔗︎

Our web team continues to update our online presence and has recently refreshed the KMyMoney website.

Releases 19.12.2 🔗︎

Some of our projects release on their own timescale and some get released en-masse. The 19.12.2 bundle of projects was released today and should be available through app stores and distros soon. See the 19.12.2 releases page for details. This bundle was previously called KDE Applications but has been de-branded to become a release service to avoid confusion with all the other applications by KDE and because there are dozens of different products rather than a single whole.

Some of the fixes included in this release are:
