KDE Applications launch website with new look and compatible with appstream

KDE Applications Web

KDE Community has just announced the release of a new version of the your KDE Applications web page. Available from this link, the new version scans builds from build.kde.org and Git looking for appdata.xml files and converting them to the required information. It also includes some cosmetic changes, such as icons that now have the Breeze theme image available in Kubuntu. The website was launched very recently and, from what we read in this link, we understand that it is in the testing phase.

At this time we are expected to find some bugs, like some of the mentioned Breeze icons that might not look good in the new version of the KDE Applications website. KDE Community hopes that we will notify you of any problems we experience when browsing your new website. The intention is to polish them before making other changes that you are already working on.

KDE Community plans to make the content displayed by the new web page more aesthetic. and relevant. Among other things, they plan to add the version number of the software and notes from its latest release. If you access it and enter the section of an application, you can see that what it shows is very similar to what we see in Flathub, and it seems that its intention is to make it look much more similar, at least in terms of the information displayed.

The new KDE Applications website is link compatible app streamThat is, when clicking on the green "Install" that we see when accessing the information of an app, it will open the software center of our Linux distribution, as long as it is compatible with these types of links. Discover is directly, but to open them with Ubuntu Software we have to access the option "Choose another application" and choose "ubuntu-software" which is in the root path / usr / bin. If we have the Snap Store installed, the link app stream it recognizes the app, but fails to install it.

The release of this new version of the KDE applications web page occurred shortly before the release of KDE Applications 19.04.2, a new version that will be released in mid-June. If there are no surprises, this version of the KDE applications will reach the Kubuntu Backports repository, which means that we can install them on Disco Dingo if we install said repository. I hope I am not wrong because I want to use the new versions. And you?
