An insight into the removal of some desktop effects in Plasma 5.23

Evolving 3D desktop effects in Plasma

With this blog post I want to share a little bit of why it was needed to remove them and why this means that they can come back in better ways than ever before.


IDK, just leave them in until the new implentations are done and tested.

They work fine, so why remove something that works well, that many people use, before the replacement is done?

Another decision that doesn’t make a lot of sense.

The developer who seems to be quite involved in this issue tries to explain matters further:

It’s all quite technical but I’m guessing removing these effects (for now?) was necessary.


Thanks for the explanation/clarification. Looking forward to seeing them again. :wink:
