Containing a month's worth of new features, enhancements and fixes, the KDE Frameworks 5.78 release is here to introduce support for the AV1 image format to all KDE software. The support is enabled by default when the libavif library is installed on your GNU/Linux distribution and lets you view AV1 encoded images in any app, including displaying of thumbnails in the Dolphin file manger. The Breeze icons theme has been updated in this release with new icons for the compass action and WIM images, as well as an image-missing icon that prevents various GTK apps from crashing. Talking about icons, it's now possible to set a fixed icon size for the items in the Places panel sidebar of the Open and Save dialogs, and Discover's "Install" and "Remove" buttons now use the standard style and re-color their icon.
