The KDE Plasma 5.13 desktop environment has been officially released today for Linux-based operating systems, bringing lots of new features and improvements over previous releases.

With a focus on stability and reliability, the KDE Plasma 5.13 desktop environment launches today with revamped lock and login screens, the former offering a slick fade-to-blur transition for displaying the controls, redesigned System Settings pages to make it easier for users to set up themes, fonts, screensavers, and more, as well as Plasma Browser Integration for downloads and media controls.

KDE Plasma 5.13 also improves the KWin window and composite manager with better effects for blur and desktop switching, as well as better Wayland support thanks to the re-implementation of window rules, initial support for desktop sharing and screencasts, as well as use of high priority EGL Contexts. The Plasma Discover graphical package manager also received an updated UI that shows ratings, sorting options, and themed icons for all apps, along with better support for the Snap and Flatpak universal binary formats.
