KDE Plasma 5.5

  • KDE Plasma 5.5 Windows 8 Metro-Inspired Theme Looks Interesting
    KDE developer Kai Uwe has just published a lengthy article where he talks about developing a Windows 8-inspired theme for the upcoming KDE Plasma 5.5 desktop environment.
  • KDE Developer Working On Windows 8 Inspired Look
    Kai Uwe has been working on some experimental hacks to resemble Windows 8, although Microsoft's default interface has changed with Windows 10. He's calling this work "U-Bahn" (the German equivalent of a Metro subsystem system) in reference to Microsoft at the time calling it Metro. This was just some brief hacking and he's not planning to see this U-Bahn project through to the end.
  • Pursuing Awesomeness
    While applets can be installed through “Get Hot New Stuff” and distribution repositories, there’s also the classic .plasmoid file. A feature suggested by one of my colleagues – fresh KDE Plasma user – was to drag .plasmoid files onto the desktop or panel and have them installed. After Marco Martin implemented the neccessary KPackage plumbing this is now possible.
