KDevelop 5 starts significantly faster with all the changes in the
plugin loading mechanisms. I've also been able to reduce start up time
of the welcome page plugin significantly lately. Still having a splash
screen seems old-fashioned, plus adds even more delay to the startup.
Thus finally want to kill it.
More reasons for removing the splash:
- Delays startup unnecessarily
- The splash screen is still broken in some configurations: Bug: ~10 px border on the right for instance (not going to fix it)
- It's 2016, splash screens are kind of out of fashion.
