In regard to the Streamlined Onboarding goal which I coordinate, our focus was on enabling newcomers to start coding on KDE software.
Here's my take on what went on.
fr: Aujourd'hui, j'ai travaillé sur une refonte de fr.kde.org. Je suis plutôt satisfait du résultat mis à part du logo de KDE en haut à gauche.

Cantor, KDE's user-friendly interface to your favorite mathematical applications, gets better support for plugins and improved Markdown and LaTeX implementations in Applications 19.08, allowing you to perform calculations and visualisations like these:
It's pretty amazing that you can develop an app using KDE's libraries in KDE's IDE, have wonderful artists make your project artwork in KDE's painting app and edit a video about it all in KDE's video editor. The number of organizations that could tell the same story can be counted on one hand. The scope of what the #KDE community does is stunning.
@gnome A few years ago, I was watching my sister doing her college homework; she was studying biology. I saw her editing a photo in the GIMP, on Windows.
"Sis, I didn't know you used the GIMP."
"Oh, yeah, some friends at school told me about it, it's a Photoshop clone one can just download."
"Sis, did you know I was the maintainer like 15 years ago? I wrote the first third-party plugin for it."
I'm happy that we've given non-computer nerds good software.
Congratulations to @gnome project!!
22 years of free software developed for and by a great community!
KDE Applications 19.08 is out and it comes with exciting new features for Konsole (terminal app), Dolphin (file and directory explorer), Kdenlive (video editor), Okular (document viewer) and dozens of other apps.
we need to reclaim programming as something for everyone
we need to reclaim it as a thing to use for fun and as a personal tool, instead of something you learn for careers to impress corporations
computer programming should be a place where misogyny, sexism, corporations, and capitalism don't belong
KDE's Applications webpage now lists addons so you can find out about Latte Dock, KIO GDrive, KDE Connect and a bunch of other useful plugins we make.

KDE developers have fixed the bug that allowed the execution of potentially malicious code. The update is already in neon and will appear in your distro shortly.
There is a vulnerability in the Plasma desktop that KDE developers are currently working to patch. The details are here.
For the moment avoid downloading .desktop or .directory files and extracting archives from untrusted sources.
Also, if you discover a similar vulnerability, it is best to send an email email@example.com before making it public. This will give us time to patch it and keep users safe before the bad guys try to exploit it.
