Hi,

Plasma users might already have noticed two new features:

- The updater applet works for Tumbleweed now

I have already started using this is feaure. This is great



- New "Full Wayland" session option for Plasma

If you use the "Plasma (Wayland)" option to start the session, many
applications are talking over X11 to Xwayland instead of to the Wayland
compositor directly. While this works around bugs and missing features, it
also
means that some advantages of Wayland are not accessible.
By simply selecting "Plasma (Full Wayland)", GTK and Qt applications use their
native Wayland backends.

I tried this and it just hangs and I was unable to even use CTRL-ALT-F1, etc. I
had to do ssh and reboot the machine to get access and reboot the machine. I
will take a look at the logs tomorrow. The second I tried, I got the session,
but the response was extremely sluggish. I wanted to execute terminal and
execute the top program, but I the kconsole just wasn’t getting invoked. So I
have reverted back to the plasma session. But if anyone has tried this and it
is working, it will be good to know.--
