Konsole�s user interface changes

"Konsole is the app that probably almost every KDE developer
uses on a daily basis, but there hasn't been much development on
the user interface front during the last releases. The two brave
souls Robert Knight and Kurt Hindenburg are busy triaging and
fixing bugs. So to say Konsole is more maintained than developed
due to a simple lack of manpower. Nonetheless some recent changes
may be worth blogging about.
"Konsole does a brilliant job at being a terminal emulator but
it doesn't follow user interface standards set by the majority of
KDE apps very well. The remainder of this post is mostly about the
menu bar and popup menus. Generally, Konsole is forced to apply to
the scheme CTRL+SHIFT+Shortcut where other apps would use only
CTRL+Shortcut because apps in the terminal might want to use those.
Up until now Konsole had it's very own idea about shortcuts and
accelerators. For example, if you wanted to open another tab, you
had to do CTRL+SHIFT+N where it should actually be CTRL+SHIFT+T.
There are other examples but all those should be fixed by now."
