Änderungen in Fedora 40 für Desktop Benutzer

KDE-Plasma 6

Fedora 40 bietet die KDE-Plasma 6 Desktop-Oberfläche, ein Upgrade von der bisherigen Version.

Die neue Version bietet viele Neuerungen, wie z. B: partizielle HDR Unterstützung, ein neuer Effekt um den Überblick zu behalten, ein schwebendes Panel und viele andere Neuerungen. Der Cube ist zurück.

KDE Plasma 6 is successor to KDE Plasma 5 created by the KDE Community. It is based on Qt 6 and KDE Frameworks 6 and brings many changes and improvements over previous versions. For Fedora Linux, the transition to KDE Plasma 6 will also include dropping support for the X11 session entirely, leaving only Plasma Wayland as the sole offered desktop mode. X11 applications are still supported, however. See the Feedback section on the Change page for details.

For full information about the new KDE release, see the official announcement.

IBus Änderungen

The IBus package, which provides multilingual input in Fedora, has been updated to version 1.5.30. Enhancements include:

  • The ibus start and ibus restart commands will work for KDE Plasma on Wayland. (They have worked previously in Plasma on X11.)

  • The "Preference" menu item will be shown in IBus activate menu in Plasma on Wayland. (The change is not needed in Plasma on X11 since the context menu is also available.)

Additionally, the updated ibus-anthy package now updates the Japanese Era for 2024 for those using a Japanese locale.
