16 de agosto de 2018. Publicouse a versión 18.08.0 das aplicacións de KDE.

Traballamos continuamente en mellorar o software que se inclúe nas aplicacións de KDE, e esperamos que as novas melloras e correccións de fallos lle resulten de utilidade!

Fixéronse varias melloras no modo de comparación de imaxes:

Introducíronse varias pequenas melloras para mellorar aínda máis o fluxo de traballo:


KMail, KDE's powerful email client, features some improvements in the travel data extraction engine. It now supports UIC 918.3 and SNCF train ticket barcodes and Wikidata-powered train station location lookup. Support for multi-traveler itineraries was added, and KMail now has integration with the KDE Itinerary app.

Akonadi, the personal information management framework, is now faster thanks to notification payloads and features XOAUTH support for SMTP, allowing for native authentication with Gmail.


Cantor, KDE's frontend to mathematical software, now saves the status of panels ("Variables", "Help", etc.) for each session separately. Julia sessions have become much faster to create.

User experience in KAlgebra, our graphing calculator, has been significantly improved for touch devices.


Contributors to Spectacle, KDE's versatile screenshot tool, focused on improving the Rectangular Region mode:

Para facilitar compartir, agora cópianse automaticamente no portapapeis ligazóns a imaxes compartidas. Agora as capturas de pantalla poden gardarse automaticamente en subdirectorios indicados polos usuarios.

Kamoso, our webcam recorder, was updated to avoid crashes with newer GStreamer versions.

Destrución de fallos

Solucionáronse máis de 120 fallos en aplicacións como, entre outros, a colección de Kontact, Ark, Cantor, Dolphin, Gwenview, Kate, Konsole, Okular, Spectacle e Umbrello!

Spread the Word

Non-technical contributors are an important part of KDE’s success. While proprietary software companies have huge advertising budgets for new software releases, KDE depends on people talking with other people. Even for those who are not software developers, there are many ways to support the KDE Applications release. Report bugs. Encourage others to join the KDE Community. Or support the nonprofit organization behind the KDE community

Please spread the word on the Social Web. Submit stories to news sites, use channels like delicious, digg, reddit, and twitter. Upload screenshots of your new set-up to services like Facebook, Flickr, ipernity and Picasa, and post them to appropriate groups. Create screencasts and upload them to YouTube,, and Vimeo. Please tag posts and uploaded materials with 'KDE'. This makes them easy to find, and gives the KDE Promo Team a way to analyze coverage for this KDE Applications release.

Installing KDE Applications Binary Packages


Some Linux/UNIX OS vendors have kindly provided binary packages of KDE Applications for some versions of their distribution, and in other cases community volunteers have done so. Additional binary packages, as well as updates to the packages now available, may become available over the coming weeks.

Package Locations
