KDE Plasma 5.17 will be launched in October with modernizing the Settings, add many UI changes
The KDE Plasma 5.17 desktop environment will be released on October 15th. From the announcement released by KDE developer, Nate Graham today, this version will usher in many modern UI changes, such as a completely improved system settings window. Obviously, the interface helps new and advanced users customize all aspects of the KDE Plasma desktop environment.
Nate Graham said in the latest weekly report: “This design is months in the making, and it took quite a bit of work to pull it off.” In addition to modern system settings, KDE Plasma 5.17 also allows users to sort the order of slide wallpapers, add ‘manual’ mode for night color functions (to be turned on and off at any time), and support for syncing DPI and NumLock key status to the SDDM login screen.
KDE Plasma 5.17 will use the Qt 5.12 and 5.13 libraries, as well as the KDE 5.63 framework and the KDE 19.08 package. This version will open beta on September 19th, and the official version is expected to be available on October 15, 2019.
