Latte Dock v0.10 | Second Beta Release

https://phabricator.kde.org/source/latte-dock/


Getting closer to v0.10 stable release...
 
Let's welcome Latte Dock v0.9.98  the Second Beta of  v0.10.x branch!
 
A new beta was needed because some core parts were updated such as Last Active Window implementation (L.A.W.) . LAW is responsible to track windows per panel/dock level and provide these information to latte centric applets such as appmenu, title, buttons etc. Through LAW, Latte is possible to provide information for windows on inactive VDs/Activities/Screens. By reimplementing some of its parts the multi-screen users that use appmenus/titles/buttons applets in different screens should now get one of the best experiences. You can check how this fix was tracked down from: https://github.com/psifidotos/applet-window-appmenu/issues/172

Latte bug fix release v0.9.12

 


Hello everyone, as it appears the Latte Dock issue with Plasma 5.22 was solved by openSUSE. Everyone should thank Fabian Vogt for providing the relevant patch and give a few more months life for v0.9.x branch.

You can get both  v0.9.12 [stable]  and v0.9.91 [pre-beta of v0.10.x] from  store.kde.org*

Latte Dock | End Of Life for v0.9.11


Hello everyone, this is a notice for users and distro packagers.
 
Latte v0.9.11 is the last published stable version for v0.9.x branch but it is not updated or maintained any more. It has not beed updated for more than a year and unfortunately  the next stable branch v0.10.x is not ready yet. I will probably need three or four months from now to complete its implementation.
 
The bad news is that v0.9.11 is not compatible with Plasma 5.22 . All users using v0.9.11 when they update to Plasma 5.22 will observe a broken Latte Tasks plasmoid.
 
Solutions:
  • Distros should update to latest Latte git version which I call pre-beta and is versioned v0.9.91 in master branch
  • Someone steps in and publishes a new v0.9.12 release that is compatible with Plasma 5.22 . No problem if some features do not work, it just needs to provide a valid Latte Tasks plasmoid
  • Users after 5.22 should switch to plasma panels and wait for official Latte v0.10.x to be provided from their distros
 
All relevant talk can be followed at: bug#413187
