KDE The KDE Software Compilation 4.11 has been released.

Gearing up for long term maintenance, Plasma Workspaces delivers further improvements to basic functionality with a smoother taskbar, smarter battery widget and improved sound mixer. The introduction of KScreen brings intelligent multi-monitor handling to the Workspaces, and large scale performance improvements combined with small usability tweaks make for an overall nicer experience.

This release marks massive improvements in the KDE PIM stack, giving much better performance and many new features. Kate improves the productivity of Python and Javascript developers with new plugins, Dolphin became faster and the educational applications bring various new features.

This release of KDE Platform 4.11 continues to focus on stability. New features are being implemented for our future KDE Frameworks 5.0 release, but for the stable release we managed to squeeze in optimizations for our Nepomuk framework.

That name.

Also, please, avoid any MS thing using the new ribbon, they are, to me, a bad joke, why I would sacrifice space on my screen to have them there "all the time"?


You can hide the ribbon bar leaving even more room for content. I do this on Office for OSX because I still have the menu bar menus.

What I really don't like about the ribbon is the massive item density and mixture of buttons, I get completely lost when looking for things.
