KDE has released plasma 5.13 officially, the new version of this powerful and customizable desktop environment. And although many portals describe it as a desktop environment for GNU / Linux, you already know that it can be installed and enjoyed in other open source operating systems ... As it appears in the title, this new version implies some new features and implementations quite a bit interesting that we are going to comment on in this article.
KDE Plasma 5.13 has a development approach focused on stability and reliability, two features that the KDE developers have pampered with special attention to launch this environment that we can all enjoy from now on. And these are not two unimportant characteristics, since they are two good qualities that we all look for in our environments to carry out efficient work. Among the notable novelties are the renewed login and session screens ...In the announcement of the statement you can read: «Members of the Plasma team have been working hard to continue to turn Plasma into a lightweight, load-sensitive desktop environment that works quickly, but remains fully featured with a polished appearance. We've spent the last four months optimizing startup and minimizing memory usage, delivering faster time, better runtime performance, and less RAM consumption«.
Something that not many users believe and that continue to consider KDE Plasma as a very heavy environment, but certainly in recent releases we see that the RAM consumption is extremely good and it has little to envy to light environments while preserving all the power of KDE Plasma without sacrificing performance ... By the way, too KWin and Plasma Discover, two of its known elements, have received updates to improve the user experience.
