The rise of movements we can only imagine now, but that could be similarly beneficial to that of Free Software, will be impeded by an Internet restricted by articles 11 and 13. It would be far better if articles 11 and 13 simply did not happen.

You can help stop this by getting in touch with your representative in the EU parliament. Find out how you can do this here:

This is the last chance to change the course of the approval of Articles 11 and 13 in the new EU copyright directive.

These articles will impose restrictions that will have dampening effect on the free flow of information on the Internet, hindering the environment that helped give rise to all Free Software, including KDE.

Although the new directive contains provisions that protect Free Software projects (like KDE) and non-profits (like Wikipedia), this is far from future-proof.

The privacy team is sprinting in Leipzig for 5 days. They'll discuss how to encrypt email headers to limit metadata 3rd parties can sniff, detect non-encrypted http links, and implement a proxy that will give you control over what data leaves your system, among many other things.

The Kdenlive team made a video of the first day of their sprint. Get a candid peek into what developing KDE's video editor looks like.

Near real-world range of colors, including more greens and reds and 10 to 16 bits per channel, allowing for much smoother gradations.

WARNING: Windows only release! Mainly because there is no other operating system that currently supports HDR hardware. As soon as there are drivers for HDR hardware for Linux and macOS, we'll be ready.

Plasma developers never rest: Plasma 5.15.3 released with bug fixes and feature refinements to give you a better desktop experience.
