Plasma Desktop in 4.6.0

January, 26th 2011. KDE is happy to announce the immediate availability of Plasma Desktop and Plasma Netbook 4.6. The Plasma Workspaces have seen both polish in existing functionality as well as the introduction of significant new innovations extending Plasma's capabilities further towards a more semantic, task-driven workflow.

The Activities system has been redesigned making it easier to take advantage of them. By right clicking to the window title, you can now make applications and files part of an activity. Changing to this activity, the Plasma workspace will show you what you need when you need it. The process for adding, renaming and removing Activities has also been improved.

What I’m missing in the bar is the ability to plug it into a vertical control panel. More exactly: I miss it turning by 90° to keep the text readable. And in the right control bar it is huge, when the control bar is fixed to the upper right (on the left, fixed to the bottom, it strangely is not).

Also I miss the option of having it show icons. Are any of those planned?

And should I report them in the bugtracker?

Both of those should be reported in the bug tracker. The text being misdisplayed in a vertical panel is a bug, while the display of icons is a feature request.

Hi, the link to my blog post is broken now since my old domain provider kind of bit the dust. The new link for "The Rise of Plasma Activities and What it can do for You" is:

Just a heads up :)

Hi All,
I like Activities very much. But I curious about if I have many Activities such as 3. If I pause some of them or let's them all in unpause state. Would it affect to performance or memory usage?

Thanks :)

I think that whatever is running in a paused activity is essentially stopped, so impact on the system should be minimal.

The running activities are loaded in plasma, the stopped ones are not. That, and the fact that there are no running applications in the stopped activities is the only difference.

I have not tested how much memory a single activity in plasma takes. Probably depends a lot on applets you have set up in it.
