KDE Plasma 5.7 to Ship with Huge Wayland Improvements, New System Tray

The first thing users will notice after upgrading to the KDE Plasma 5.7 desktop from a previous version, such as the recently released KDE Plasma 5.6.5, is the all-new, unified login screen (see the screenshot at the end of the article), offering users a more mature Breeze-based startup experience. The Oxygen and Air Plasma themes received various enhancements as well and there are huge Wayland improvements, better Kiosk support, a new system tray and a much-improved task manager.
