my disappointment is due to the fact that these issues have been discussed already immediately after the release of 10.3. A good proposal (1st screenshot) was done, and partly realised, and it received good comments by some users, also on the KDE side. Then suddenly it was abandoned without asking anything to the users, and without a motivation. Was it too hard to do? Too complex? No time?
Not really; as a matter of fact the new design incorporates some of the suggestions that I had made in the discussion back then, perhaps you remember.
