Today, the KDE Project celebrates the 21st anniversary of the well-known and widely used desktop environment for GNU/Linux and UNIX-like operating systems with new releases of its KDE Frameworks and KDE Applications software stacks.

KDE recently unveiled KDE Plasma 5.11 as the latest and most advanced version of the KDE desktop environment, and today they released KDE Applications 17.08.2 and KDE Frameworks 5.39.0, which are now available to download for users of the KDE Plasma 5 desktop environments, as well as GNU/Linux distros that use the KDE Stack.

KDE Applications 17.08.2 is the second of three minor releases of the KDE Applications 17.08 software suite, bringing a month’s worth of bug fixes and translation updates. Over 25 issues were addressed in this update to improve popular apps like the Dolphin file manager, Okular document viewer, and Gwenview image viewer.

The Kdenlive video editor, Kontact personal information management (PIM), and Marble virtual globe and world atlas apps were improved as well in KDE Applications 17.08.2, which also ships with the long-term supported KDE Development Platform 4.14.37. Study the full changelog for more details on the bugs fixed.
