KDE 4.11 Brings Better Performance & New Stuff

Filed under
KDE

Jos Poortvliet today announced the release of KDE Plasma 4.11 on dot.kde.org. He wrote this release is dedicated to Atul 'toolz' Chitnis, KDE contributor who passed away June 3. The rest of the announcement outlined all the wonderful improvements this release.

New Taskbar

The KDE task manager and taskbar were ported to QtQuick for Plasma 2 yet remains very much familiar to end users, as reported earlier. It should behave more like the rest of the KDE desktop elements now. In addition, a lot of annoying and long-standing bugs were squashed. The Kickoff menu now displays recently installed application for a few days and users can now configure some options for desktop notifications.
