KDE Plasma 5.11 has been in development for the past several months, and it was offered as a Beta since mid-September, allowing early adopters to its new features and enhancements, starting with the redesign of the System Settings app, which makes it easier to access common settings, and continuing with Plasma Vault, a secure storage app that lets users store sensitive information in encrypted vaults. KDE's ongoing effort to modernize the notification system in the KDE Plasma desktop environment continues in this release with the implementation of notification history. This means that Plasma's notification feature will now show missed or expired system notifications if the user enables support. On top of that, KDE Plasma 5.11 brings more improvements to the Task Mananger, Folder View, and App Launcher Menu.
