KDE Frameworks 5.88 Arrives to Make the Plasma Desktop Faster and More Enjoyable

KDE Frameworks 5.88 is here to further improve your Plasma desktop environment and favorite KDE apps by fixing bugs or implementing new features. It also makes the Plasma desktop environment a bit faster and to use less memory every time it loads an icon, as well as when accessing files when the system’s /etc/fstab file contains entries identified with UUID and/or LABEL properties.

With this update, the Plasma desktop now saves any changes you made in Edit Mode when you exit it, the Plasma Wayland session now lets you paste arbitrary clipboard content into a file and no longer crashes when you repeatedly hover and un-hover Task Manager’s thumbnails, and you can now double-click on a Plasma spinbox’s number to select it.
