KDE Applications 19.08 Open-Source Software Suite Released, Here’s What’s New

More than two months in the works, the KDE Applications 19.08 software suite is here to elevate your KDE apps experience by implementing various enhancements and new features. Among these, we can mention the ability to launch the Dolphin file manager from anywhere via a new Meta + E keyboard shortcut, along with improvements to the information panel to automatically play media files or copy the text displayed in the panel. Furthermore, the KDE Applications 19.08 release improves various of KDE’s default applications, including the Gwenview image viewer, which now features a much-improved, faster, and more resource-efficient thumbnailer when loading JPEG and RAW images, better support for Canon and Sony cameras, as well as a new “Share” menu that lets you send images to various places and more informative EXIF metadata for RAW files.
