KDE Frameworks 5.80 Adds Support for HEIF and HEIC Image Formats to All KDE Apps

KDE Frameworks 5.80 is yet another hefty update to the collection of more than 80 add-on libraries to Qt, which provide a wide range of commonly needed functionality to the KDE Plasma desktop environment and apps.

The biggest changes in this release include the implementation of support for HEIF (High Efficiency Image File Format) and HEIC (High Efficiency Image Coding) image formats in all KDE apps, launch speed improvements for all Kirigami-based apps, and better support for Windows apps when installed via Wine.
