KDE Plasma 5.10 Officially Released, Folder View Is Now the New Default Desktop

KDE Plasma 5.10 packs Folder View as default desktop interface instead of the Folder Widget that was used until now. Folder View features spring loading functionality which you can see in action in the gallery below, space-saving icon grid, unified drop menu, and better mouse behavior. KDE Plasma 5.10 also comes with integration of Snappy and Flatpak technologies in the Plasma Discover package manager, allowing users to easily install these universal binary apps on their systems. Plasma Discover now supports GNOME’s Open Desktop Ratings Service (ODRS) for reviews and comments of KDE apps, too.
