KDE

Today KDE publishes this autumn's Plasma feature release, KDE Plasma 5.11. Plasma 5.11 brings a redesigned settings app, improved notifications, a more powerful task manager. Plasma 5.11 is the first release to contain the new "Vault", a system to allow the user to encrypt and open sets of documents in a secure and user-friendly way, making Plasma an excellent choice for people dealing with private and confidential information.

This screenshot of the new Vault feature with a selection in a selection because you like selections is just so KDE - and I mean that in a teasing, loving way.

GNOME and KDE pushing Wayland sessions helps Sway, because most of the problems with using Sway are really down to applications or libraries not supporting Wayland properly (looking at you, QtWebEngine). This means the big DEs putting millions of eyeballs on how things work under Wayland will uncover a bunch of bugs. Once I can run a mix of Gtk, Qt, Java, and SDL/OpenGL/Vulkan windows without firing up XWayland at all, then Sway will be a really nice environment.
