Window Buttons Applet v0.1


Welcome a new kid on the block from Latte land... !

Window Buttons Applet presents its first release to the public. I always wanted to be able to make my top panel to behave as a window titlebar whenever it is needed. To achieve this some special applets are needed and of course specific behavior from the top panel.

Appets:
- Application name and icon
         (you can find some in the kde store)
- Global menu
         (official plasma applet is perfect for this)
- Window Buttons
         (it was missing so now you can welcome it)

Top Panel Behavior:
- Drag active window by dragging the empty space of the panel
         (Latte Git version supports this by default)
- Double-click on the empty space of the panel it maximizes/restore the active window
         (Latte Git version supports this by default)

Latte Dock, new painting is coming...


Latte Dock  is updating its painting the next months. Let's see what is coming...

In the video you can see the upcoming coloring mechanism of Latte's next version. Even though I am using plasma 5.14 and I love it, it is also the reason I am already expecting impatiently plasma 5.15 this January!! :) This functionality can be supported only with plasma 5.15 .

Latte Dock, Beta 1 for v0.8 (v0.7.95)


Hello everyone Latte Dock v0.7.95 which is the first beta of v0.8 is here. Latte v0.8 is a huge release and one of its main goals is to make the user feel with it very natural and comfortable.


Plasma 5.12 with Latte v0.7.95 *

A powerful and intuitive panel/dock manager that provides an elegant Plasma experience


To use it you should build it yourself from download.kde.org or ask your distro packagers to provide it for you.

Summer came in south Europe and Latte is moving forward. The first beta of an extreme major release is here. Latte has been updated a lot both for internals and user-side. Feel free to join evolution in dock and panel management and report back any issues.

Important for contributors: Beta1 will last 10 days, during these days translators will be able to report string improvements at bugs.kde.org. English isnt my native language, (proof reading / simpler expanations) might be necessary. When Beta2 is released around 3 to 5 July the string freeze will take place. Beta2 period will last 10 more days. So v0.8 is scheduled for 13 to 15 Jully. During all these days improvements and fixes can be landed through review process at kde phabricator.

Dont hesitate, just take part and participate if you feel so. I am the single developer of Latte for a few months now and fully open to discuss new implementations, code improvements and new features.

No more talking, what v0.8 brings and why is it so important?
