KDE Usability & Productivity: Week 66

  • KDE Usability & Productivity: Week 66

    Here’s week 66 in KDE’s Usability & Productivity initiative, and some major features have landed!

  • Dolphin & Other KDE Utilities To Begin Displaying File Creation Times On Linux

    With KDE Frameworks 5.58, the Dolphin file manager and other KDE applications will finally begin displaying file creation dates/times as a long sought after feature on Linux systems.

    This support within KDE for displaying file creation times is as a result of the low-level plumbing that went into the kernel back in 2017 with the statx system call for extended file information. Statx support has been wired into EXT4 and Btrfs and other popular file-systems for being able to provide information like the file creation time rather than just the last modified time.
