August 7th, 2014. KDE today announces the second release of KDE Frameworks 5. In line with the planned release policy for KDE Frameworks this release comes one month after the initial version and has both bugfixes and new features.

KDE Frameworks are 60 addon libraries to Qt which provide a wide variety of commonly needed functionality in mature, peer reviewed and well tested libraries with friendly licensing terms. For an introduction see the Frameworks 5.0 release announcement.

New in this Version

This release, versioned 5.1, comes with a number of bugfixes and new features including:

  • KTextEditor: Major refactorings and improvements of the vi-mode
  • KAuth: Now based on PolkitQt5-1
  • New migration agent for KWallet
  • Windows compilation fixes
  • Translation fixes
  • New install dir for KXmlGui files and for AppStream metainfo
  • Plasma Taking advantage of OpenGL

Getting started

On Linux, using packages for your favorite distribution is the recommended way to get access to KDE Frameworks.

Building from source is possible using the basic cmake .; make; make install commands. For a single Tier 1 framework, this is often the easiest solution. People interested in contributing to frameworks or tracking progress in development of the entire set are encouraged to use kdesrc-build.

Frameworks 5.1 requires Qt 5.2. It is part of a series of planned monthly releases making improvements available to developers in a quick and predictable manner.

A detailed listing of all Frameworks and other third party Qt libraries is at inqlude.org, the curated archive of Qt libraries. A complete list with API documentation is on api.kde.org.

Contribute

Those interested in following and contributing to the development of Frameworks can check out the git repositories, follow the discussions on the KDE Frameworks Development mailing list and contribute patches through review board. Policies and the current state of the project and plans are available at the Frameworks wiki. Real-time discussions take place on the #kde-devel IRC channel on freenode.net.

You can discuss and share ideas on this release in the comments section of the dot article.
