+Markus S. it is, but we still need kscreen.

We use QScreen for reading
KScreen for writing (actually changing setups)

This is best because:
 - qscreen doesn't have a writing API and won't.
 - Some Qt code is already using QScreen for reading, so mixing gets buggy/confusing.

Some good stuff is happening in Plasma's multiscreen support. Read my blog for more details on that!
Here's a quick status update about where we currently stand with respect to multiscreen support in Plasma Desktop. While for many people, multiscreen support in Plasma works nicely, for some of our users, it doesn't. There are problems with restoring previously set up configurations, ...

Ouch.

I'll be doing a cavern diving course here, and I haven't brought a laptop. Pretty sure I won't be doing any hacking here at all (kind of the point of coming here), but I will be visiting temples for sure. Today was all diving, getting familiar with water conditions, practices, people and culture here. It was awesome and exhausting, in the best possible way.

In March, the yearly meeting of KDE's Plasma team was held in Geneva, kindly hosted by the European Centre for Nuclear Research (CERN). In-person meetings provide unique opportunities to work together face-to-face, at high bandwidth to tackle problems together and plan for the future. As there were some other groups present during this meeting, notably the visual design group and the Wiki cleanup team, there was ample opportunity to think outside...

So we're closing the Plasma sprint at CERN, simultaneously, half-way around the world, +Dirk Hohndel releases the first stable version of Subsurface Mobile, being the first application that uses the Kirigami components (a set of Plasma-based UI components) for its UI. The timing couldn't be better.

Congrats, Subsurface, congrats Plasma, and thanks everybody!
 
Announcing Subsurface-mobile for Android

The Subsurface development team proudly announces the first release (version 1.0.2) of Subsurface-mobile for Android, an open source dive log for phones and tablets.

This release is the result of all of our work on Subsurface and a year long development effort towards a mobile user interface that is optimized for phones and tablets. We got tremendous help from the KDE community to get us to this first release. Subsurface-mobile is the first application that implements the Kirigami UI using the Kirigami Controls by KDE.

Subsurface-mobile gives you access to your dive data on your mobile device. Simply store your dive data from the Subsurface desktop application in the Subsurface cloud and access it on your tablet or phone with the same credentials. This way your dive data are seamlessly shared between your computer at home and your mobile device. Regardless where you make changes to your data, they are synced and visible the next time you connect from any computer or device.
You can scroll through your dive list and view dive details for individual dives. You can edit many of these details right on the device and even manually add new dives.

At this point Subsurface-mobile is best used together with the Subsurface desktop application. As we continue our development we plan to make the mobile application even more useful by itself -- especially once we are able to download dive data directly from (some) dive computers. Right now you still need the Subsurface desktop application for this.

Subsurface-mobile can track your GPS locations on dive trips (and replaces the old Subsurface companion app that some of you may have used in the past for that purpose) and can show the location of dive sites on a map.

Subsurface-mobile is available in the Google Play store.
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.subsurfacedivelog.mobile

For those who don’t have access to Google Play, you can download the APK directly from our server to your device as well. Please use this link from your Android device and install the APK after it finished downloading. If you haven’t enabled installation from “unknown sources” your device will present a warning to that effect. https://subsurface-divelog.org/downloads/Subsurface-mobile-1.0.2.arm.apk

Please check the user manual https://subsurface-divelog.org/documentation/subsurface-mobile-user-manual/ for details on how to get started and report any issues that you find on our user forum https://subsurface-divelog.org/user-forum/

An iOS version of Subsurface-mobile is also under development, we expect to start alpha testing it within the next few weeks.
Subsurface is a free open source dive log application available on Windows,...

Diving at Anacapa, one of the Channel Islands off the coast of Southern California, was one of the more exciting dives I did last year. I've just come across this nice video, which gives an excellent impression of how awesome diving through a kelp forest can be like. Would totally recommend, if you ever get the chance to do it and feel confident enough (it is, after all, an open ocean dive in temperate water, with possible entanglement danger).

There seem to be (artificial) kelp plantations in the Netherlands as well, but I couldn't find a contact or location for them, yet. If you happen to know something about it (or are really good at this kind of detective work), I'd love to hear about it. It would be quite awesome to be able to dive kelp right here at home... :)

When I was there, last year in June, we had 7-10m, pretty OK, especially as the kelp gives you some impression of space.

The Plasma team is delighted to have a new version out. On top of a ton of bugfixes and performance improvments, it comes with a nice set of new features that make your workspace richer and more intuitive to use.

We visited the CMS experiment right now, which shoots small things at each other at really high speeds. It's an awesome machine, so I blogged about it.
We visited the CMS today, the Compact Muon Selenoid, one of the “experiments” that are part of the LHC, the large hadron collider, which is a research project aiming to find out more about the basic structures that make up our universe, like how gravity works, which particles make up our ...

For the first time, the majority of the developers at this Plasma sprint is now working in a Wayland session, dogfeeding.

Well, we're not switching Plasma to Wayland, we are adding support for using the Wayland protocol for a Plasma session, that's a subtle but very important difference. We're in fact doing the exact opposite of imposing X11 on people.

The reason why I used "feeding" instead of "fooding" is boringly mundane, though: I'm a grammar nazi. :P
