Plasma Grows Up

Plasma, the innovative new system that creates the menus, panels and desktop that make up a desktop, is maturing rapidly. It now supports multiple and resizeable panels allowing users to compose their desktop as flexibly as before. The application launcher menu, Kickoff, has been comprehensively polished with a clean new look and many optimisations. An overhauled Run Command dialog allows power users to quickly launch applications, open documents and visit sites. Performance gains in composited window management provide better ergonomics and eye candy, including a Cover Switch alt-tab feature and the mandatory wobbly windows effect.
