KDE Plasma 5.22.5 Released as the Last Update in the Series with More Bug Fixes

KDE Plasma 5.22.5 is here as the last point release in the series, improving the System Monitor utility to correctly display IPv4 address information when IPv6 is disabled and to make the “Export Page” function work as it’s supposed to. It also improves the Plasma Panels to use the correct edge-specific theme graphics if available, and improves the window maximization and full-screen effects to cross-fade again.
Another improvement in this release is the Digital Clock widget, whose calendar popup’s header now appears in right-to-left (RTL) text mode and makes the list of time zones scrollable. Moreover, the KDE Plasma 5.22.5 update improves the Plasma Discover graphical package manager to make some of its UI elements display shortcut keys in their tooltips. Learn more about the new release here.
