KDE Plasma 6.1.2 Released: Enhanced Overview Effect and Key Issue Fixes

The KDE Project released today KDE Plasma 6.1.2 as the second maintenance update to the latest KDE Plasma 6.1 desktop environment with more bug fixes and small improvements.

KDE Plasma 6.1.2 is here only a week after KDE Plasma 6.1.1 to improve the Overview effect by making the labels showing window titles more legible and adding bell sounds to the Ocean and Oxygen sound themes.

It also fixes hover and highlight effects in the sidebar listing sub-pages on the Accessibility page in System Settings and correctly hides the sub-category column in System Settings when using another application to open a different page that doesn’t live in a sub-category.

Since this is mostly a bugfix release, it addresses a regression that broke the layout of Plasma Discover’s “Share” dialog, a KWin crash when run on a system with graphics hardware older than 15 years, and a memory leak in Plasma caused by receiving notifications.

Also fixed in KDE Plasma 6.1.2 is a regression that could cause individual hover pop-ups on widgets to get covered up by the panel settings dialog when in edit mode, a regression that could cause Plasma’s “Show Alternatives” pop-up to get stuck in the open state, and a regression that caused the “Add Widgets…” button on empty panels to be aligned incorrectly and located in the wrong place.

On top of that, this release addresses a regression that caused undoing the deletion of a panel outside of global edit mode to make it get stuck in edit mode and an issue that could cause the Plasma desktop to freeze when a thick panel contained certain combinations of widgets with specific pop-up sizes.

Check out the full changelog for more details about the changes included in this update. Meanwhile, keep an eye on the stable software repositories of your favorite GNU/Linux distribution for the KDE Plasma 6.1.2 packages and update your installations as soon as possible for a more reliable Plasma desktop experience.
