It's pretty amazing that you can develop an app using KDE's libraries in KDE's IDE, have wonderful artists make your project artwork in KDE's painting app and edit a video about it all in KDE's video editor. The number of organizations that could tell the same story can be counted on one hand. The scope of what the community does is stunning.

...and a better Krita sprint 2019 group picture from yesterday evening (CC-By). All names or IRC nicknames will probably be written later on a blog post (on krita.org?). Today, we will do sketches at a museum, we are on the bus!

There is a vulnerability in the Plasma desktop that KDE developers are currently working to patch. The details are here.

For the moment avoid downloading .desktop or .directory files and extracting archives from untrusted sources.

Also, if you discover a similar vulnerability, it is best to send an email security@kde.org before making it public. This will give us time to patch it and keep users safe before the bad guys try to exploit it.
