Those are amazing and I love them! Especially the Yakuake icon where you've made the > character look like a subtle Y. That's just genius.

My fear with a release service happening every month and having most of our apps release every 4 months, is that we will have every 4 months a very big announcement and otherwise only a small announcement. Maybe it's not a problem, I don't know...

I would hope that for 19.12 it will be de-branded to become the Release Service

EDIT: I have already said this here and there but please don't run any automated script to SVG icons, because when opening them back in Inkscape they are corrupted and everytime I edit a Breeze icon I have to do additional work to fix shapes and gradients corrupted by the scripts.

Samples please, it would be nice to fix inkscape and/or scripts.
Also, we could store original/inkscape-friendly svg files in repo and run optimization script as part of install process.

The diagonal thing in Konsole icon is to add some identity, without it we would have a classic terminal icon.

Why "different"/non-classic icon is better than classic terminal icon? Classic one is already known and everyone will be able to find it in their menu.

Any ideas on how to add identity in general?

Basic/core applications (i.e. KWrite, Konsole, Dolphin, etc) come with the system "by default" and users need to find them easily without knowing how an app icon looks like in specific desktop environment. I guess people see them as "built-in" functions, not as stand-alone applications.

Didn't Dolphin's information panel get metadata awareness too? Or did that not land yet? Given the Goal: All About the Apps goal, I wonder if we should renew our efforts on this.

As far as I know, only the thumbnails feature is part of the official kde
repo. The rest of the features can be found on the
plasma-appimage-integration extensions set (
https://www.opencode.net/azubieta/plasma-appimage-integration). I guess
that it will worth the effort to explore whether it should be upstreamed or
not and how.

jriddell added a comment to T11767: Improve Release Announcements to better serve Developers Interests.

As discussed at the BoF on KDE Applications at Akademy there is the idea to replace KDE Applications with a de-branded Release Service and instead of announcing that having monthly 'this month from KDE' app announces. This could coincide with the Release Services releases in the months when they happen.

I didn't realise that this would supersede the quarterly KDE Applications releases. Does this render this discussion moot?

Personally I really enjoyed reading the release notes from 19.08 and was also impressed when I saw them the first time.
I was really cool and pleasant to have this full text which covers the most interesting part.

We already explicitly suggest to make 48px application icons only (only few have more sizes). Titlebar and taskbar use ~22px icons, so you can either get bad looking small icons, or give up with nice details on 48px ones.

I was really cool and pleasant to have this full text which covers the most interesting part. After finishing I always take look into the full release notes to dive deeper into it.
What about combining those two formats? Cover the interesting parts with floating text and the important ones underneath it with bullets like it was with 19.04 and before.


Maybe make the link to the full changelog/release notes also more prominent?

Expanding a bit on the fact that the line between important and interesting may be not absolute, I think that any of items on the "Important (but not very interesting)" list become interesting if they were associated to a bug which had a relevant number of votes/reactions.

I think it could also be interesting to compare the dot article to the announcement and the release announcemen in kde.org.

That are the goal of this two different but still similar announcements?

Leon0402 added a comment to T10243: Some KDE applications could use better icons.

Personally, I prefer branding icons much over functionality. It would be horrible if all my browsers and code editors would have the same icon. I want to know when I look in my task bar, what apps exactly I have open. Furthermore, it's always been like that ... no app on my phone or somewhere else uses a generic icon ... for good reason, I search for an app by looking at the icon and not at the text (in fact, some icons don't even have text like the icon in the bottom "favourite bar" on iOS).
Imho, a good branding icon gives some hint about the functionality as well, but it doesn't have to. And well the branding icon is designed by the application, not by breeze.
