Alright so, good news! My biggest concern in adding the new popover code was actually preserving the "roll over" behaviour we currently have in Budgie popovers. i.e. if a popover is "open", you can move the mouse over another popover-capable widget, and that widget's popover will take over.

So, managed to actually nail the popover manager side of it, which means we can have the toplevel GtkWindow based popovers after all, solving a bajillion issues, and preserve the very nice behaviour of the roll-over menubar-esque popovers =)

Sidenote: Ignore the position and appearance of the popover, that stuff comes later as the logic itself is far more important ^^

Taught Budgie menu a new trick! If you disable category headers, then it'll only sort by name. If you have them enabled, it'll sort by group and name.

Additionally if you stick it into "super compact" mode, i.e. compact & no headers, then it'll hide any duplicates too.

..Oh and I maybe ported the Brisk Menu search + sort logic to the menu, so the old "dynamic resort" of the menu has been dropkicked off the Solus boat so that the menu can just show logically scored items.

Now that a full stack upgrade has been completed, it's time to start testing out plasma on +Solus. Ideally this requires using a fresh user account (which can be nuked and retested when things change). Ideas/bugs/improvements etc can be added here (please don't use forums/Phabricator at this stage for plasma issues): global commenting should be active. And as it's all about community, you can of course comment on how to fix bugs. If you really want to help, then checking back once a day probably isn't a bad idea as it will grow as needed (I'll be asking for feedback and testing on some parts for validation). Note the desktop is still unsupported for day to day use, but I still need to know what needs work.

Note: it seems to be easiest if you type your content straight in the sheet and it comes up as a change for me to approve.

Next weekend I should have time to plough through adding a bunch of packages, but for now I have some secret sauce to test out

Thanks to the awesome work by +Peter O'Connor we now have Qt 5.9 in Solus (Actually it's been there since last night)

The theming issue in Qt 5.9 (Gtk styling removed in 5.7) has been resolved in Solus by shipping qtstyleplugins as an update alongside Qt 5 to that apps continue to look and feel native on the GTK desktop experiences.
