Last April, KDE He launched a new major update to its suite of apps. It is in April, August and December when they introduce new versions with new functions, while the rest of the months give us point updates or maintenance. We are now in the month of May, which means that it is time for an update of those that are released to correct errors, and a few hours ago have thrown KDE Gear 22.04.1.
As usual, the project that baptizes almost all of its software with a name that begins with K (the first was “Kool”, KDE's meaning “Kool Desktop Environment) has published several posts about this release. In one of them he announces his arrival, while in others he offers us the source code of the software or provides us with the full list of changes.
KDE Gear 22.04.1 is the May 2022 Maintenance Update
In all, KDE Gear 22.04.1 sees 116 bugs have been fixed, many of which have been patched on Kdenlive. KDE's video editor is one of their most popular programs, and that's one of the reasons why they pay more attention to it than others. The other is that they have introduced many changes in recent years, and the new features also need to be polished.
The release of KDE Gear 22.04.1 has become official this afternoon in Spain, but you will have to have a little patience to be able to install it on most Linux distributions. There are already some apps from this set on Flathub, and all the new packages will be coming to KDE neon soon if they haven't already. As for whether they will make it to Kubuntu 22.04 + Backports PPA, the answer should be yes, but KDE usually waits for at least the second point update to push them to their Backports repository.
