KDE Plasma 5.8 Beta

Thursday, 15 September 2016

Today KDE releases a beta of its first Long Term Support edition of its flagship desktop software, Plasma. This marks the point where the developers and designers are happy to recommend Plasma for the widest possible audience be they enterprise or non-techy home users. If you tried a KDE desktop previously and have moved away, now is the time to re-assess, Plasma is simple by default, powerful when needed.

Plasma's Comprehensive Features

Take a look at what Plasma offers, a comprehensive selection of features unparalleled in any desktop software.


Desktop Widgets


Cover your desktop in useful widgets to keep you up to date with weather, amused with comics or helping with calculations.

Yhtenäinen ulkoasu

Unified Look

Yhtenäinen ulkoasu

Plasma's default Breeze theme has a unified look across all the common programmer toolkits - Qt 4 & 5, GTK 2 & 3, even LibreOffice.


Phone Integration


Using KDE Connect you'll be notified on your desktop of text message, can easily transfer files, have your music silenced during calls and even use your phone as a remote control.

Rajattomasti mukautettavisssa

Infinitely Customisable

Rajattomasti mukautettavisssa

Plasma on oletusarvoisesti yksinkertainen, mutta voit mukauttaa sitä miten haluat uusin sovelmin, paneelein, näytöin ja tyylein.

Uutta Plasma 5.8:ssa

Unified Boot to Shutdown Artwork

Unified Boot to Shutdown Artwork

This release brings an all-new login screen design giving you a complete Breeze startup to shutdown experience. The layout has been tidied up and is more suitable for workstations that are part of a domain or company network. While it is much more streamlined, it also allows for greater customizability: for instance, all Plasma wallpaper plugins, such as slideshows and animated wallpapers, can now be used on the lock screen.

Right-to-Left Language Support

Oikealta vasemmalle kirjoitettavien kielten tuki

Support for Semitic right-to-left written languages, such as Hebrew and Arabic, has been greatly improved. Contents of panels, the desktop, and configuration dialogs are mirrored in this configuration. Plasma’s sidebars, such as widget explorer, window switcher, activity manager, show up on the right side of the screen.

Parannetut sovelmat

Context Menu Media Controls

Kontekstivalikon mediasäätimet

The virtual desktop switcher (“Pager”) and window list applets have been rewritten, using the new task manager back-end we introduced in Plasma 5.7. This allows them to use the same dataset as the task manager and improves their performance while reducing memory consumption. The virtual desktop switcher also acquired an option to show only the current screen in multi-screen setups and now shares most of its code with the activity switcher applet.

Task manager gained further productivity features in this release. Media controls that were previously available in task manager tooltips only are now accessible in the context menus as well. In addition to bringing windows to the front during a drag and drop operation, dropping files onto task manager entries themselves will now open them in the associated application. Lastly, the popup for grouped windows can now be navigated using the keyboard and text rendering of its labels has been improved.

Yksinkertaistetut työpöydänlaajuiset pikanäppäimet

Global Shortcuts Setup

Työpöydänlaajuisten pikanäppäinten asetus

Global shortcuts configuration has been simplified to focus on the most common task, that is launching applications. Building upon the jump list functionality added in previous releases, global shortcuts can now be configured to jump to specific tasks within an application.

Thanks to our Wayland effort, we can finally offer so-called “modifier-only shortcuts”, enabling you to open the application menu by just pressing the Meta key. Due to popular demand, this feature also got backported to the X11 session.

Muita parannuksia

Plasma Discover's new UI

Plasma Discoverin uusi käyttöliittymä

This release sees many bugfixes in multi-screen support and, together with Qt 5.6.1, should significantly improve your experience with docking stations and projectors.

KWin, Plasman ikkunaohjelma, sallii nyt koostamisen llvmpipen läpi, mikä helpottaa käyttöä harvinaisilla ja upotteisilla laitteilla. Nyt kun sovelluksille on koostamisen poistamiseksi käytöstä standardoitu ja laajakäyttöinen käyttöliittymä, ”Koko ruudun uudelleenohjauksen poisto” -valinta on poistettu. Se johti usein vakausongelmiin ja oli siksi jo valmiiksi poistettu käytöstä monilla ajureilla.

Now that Kirigami, our set of versatile cross-platform UI components, has been released, we’re pleased to bring you a revamped version of Plasma Discover based on Kirigami.

Käytössä ovat uudet oletusfontit. Googlen Noto-fontissa on kaikki Unicode-standardiin kuuluvat merkistöt. Uusi tasalevyinen fonttimme Hack on täydellinen koodareille ja päätteen käyttäjille.

Olemme Waylandissä!

Plasma on Wayland Now with GTK+ support

Plasma on Wayland Now with GTK+ support

Waylandin Plasma on edennyt pitkälle viime kuukausina. Vaikkei pitkäaikaistukilupauksemme koske nopeasti kehittyvää Wayland-pinoa, katsomme sitä valmiiksi suuren yleisön testattavaksi. Joitakin ongelmia ja puuttuvia piirteitä on yhä, mutta olemme nyt vaiheessa, jossa voimme pyytää sinua kokeilemaan sitä ja antamaan palautetta. Tämän julkaisun huomattavia parannuksia ovat:
