JuK, KDE's music player, now has Wayland support. New UI features include the ability to hide the menu bar and having a visual indication of the currently playing track. While docking to the system tray is disabled, JuK will no longer crash when attempting to quit via the window 'close' icon and the user interface will remain visible. Bugs regarding JuK autoplaying unexpectedly when resuming from sleep in Plasma 5 and handling the playlist column have also been fixed.

Over the last months, contributors of Gwenview, KDE's image viewer and organizer, worked on a plethora of improvements. Highlights include:

Attention to detail is important, so Gwenview has been polished in the following areas:

Even smaller enhancements often can make user's workflows more enjoyable:


In Okular, KDE's universal document viewer, PDF rendering and text extraction can now be cancelled if you have poppler version 0.63 or higher, which means that if you have a complex PDF file and you change the zoom while it's rendering it will cancel immediately instead of waiting for the render to finish.

You will find improved PDF JavaScript support for AFSimple_Calculate, and if you have poppler version 0.64 or higher, Okular will support PDF JavaScript changes in read-only state of forms.

Management of booking confirmation emails in KMail, KDE's powerful email client, has been significantly enhanced to support train bookings and uses a Wikidata-based airport database for showing flights with correct timezone information. To make things easier for you, a new extractor has been implemented for emails not containing structured booking data.

Weitere Verbesserungen enthalten:

Wichtige Fehlerkorrekturen umfassen:

With Kleopatra, KDE's certificate manager and universal crypto GUI, Curve 25519 EdDSA keys can be generated when used with a recent version of GnuPG. A 'Notepad' view has been added for text based crypto actions and you can now sign/encrypt and decrypt/verify directly in the application. Under the 'Certificate details' view you will now find an export action, which you can use to export as text to copy and paste. What's more, you can import the result via the new 'Notepad' view.

In Ark, KDE's graphical file compression/decompression tool with support for multiple formats, it is now possible to stop compressions or extractions while using the libzip backend for ZIP archives.
