Wow, Kdenlive is getting so many bugfixes lately... How usable is it in practice for simple video editing such as stitching together a few clips from a phone and adding captions or a sound track? That's all I need, really.

My first patch in years, and my first attempt at using Phabricator:

Yes, it's simply a one-liner fixing a minor annoyance while building for the first time. Let's see what the maintainers will think of it.

Valve hires KWin core developer Roman Gilg for gaming-related XServer and KWin improvements. Roman seems to have a ton of cool projects in the pipeline, and this makes me happy.

Tested Plasma 5.16 with Wayland and...

...still not usable ๐Ÿ˜ž

In just 5 minutes, I hit all these bugs:

bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4
bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4
bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3
bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-

Moreover, setting key repeat delay and rate doesn't work and I'm not sure which component this bug belongs to, but it's been there for years.

Finally upgraded to Plasma 5.16 and it's a real pleasure to use. Thank you, @kde

I just drafted a goal proposal. It's about improving the user experience for setting up input methods, a longstanding pain point for me.

Finally found a fix for resizing GTK3 apps with client-side decorations in KWin. But why isn't this workaround active by default? @kde

Every time I hit a little annoying bugs in , [email protected] (Nathaniel Graham) has already a fix for it ๐Ÿ˜ฏ
I'm impressed by his focus on quality and user experience. Something that's been absent in open source desktops for too long. @martasd

If you haven't tried in a while, it's time to give it another look: lately, the developers seem to be working extra hard to improve the fine details of the user experience. @kde
