The promo video is worth watching, even if you're not a user.

It's a great example of a community project getting marketing right. We can't just be writing code and hope that users will find out on their own...

"Bug triaging is the foundation of quality and we need more of it"

I would argue that software quality has 3 foundations: good code reviews, testing, and... yeah... when everything else fails, bug triaging too!

5.22 is out with improved Wayland support, usability improvements and eye candy 🍬

I've been personally testing it for you every day, so it's bug-free and just perfect in every detail 😉

desktop 5.22 will be released next week:

If you're technical enough to file good bug reports, install the beta this weekend and help us catch any remaining issues!

By the way, it's also available from .

"Have a look at to discover ways to be part of a project that really matters. Each contributor makes a huge difference in KDE; you are not a number or a cog in a machine! You don’t have to already be a programmer, either. I wasn’t when I got started. Try it, you’ll like it! We don’t bite!"

Well, I guess I could start reporting bugs instead of bitching here... 😒
