Fast Track Talk (10 min) Past, Present and Future


Volker Krause (KDE)


Where are we on the way to KDE Frameworks 6, what is still in our way and how are we going to proceed?

Description In this talk we are going to look at how far we have come since starting the road to KDE Frameworks 6 at Akademy 2019 three years ago, the obstacles we still see ahead and the best guesses on how we will move forward. We will also evaluate how the strategy chosen to minimize the disruptions during the transition to Qt6 and KF6 has held up so far, and where we are for a KF6-based Plasma and applications.
A short bio Volker joined KDE 20 years ago and has since contributed to KDE Frameworks, KDE PIM and Akonadi, ELF Dissector, the digital travel assistance app KDE Itinerary and three major version transitions of KDE's software stack.
