This week in Usability & Productivity, the KDE VDG worked very intensively on aesthetics. The Breeze icon theme gained a lot of attention, resulting in many improvements, and we now have a good number of icon designers diligently working through a backlog of issues. More is on the way too, with several enthusiastic new VDG members who combine an eye for design with strong technical abilities. Expect good things to come of this!
The default image fill mode for wallpapers is now “Scaled and Cropped”, which has the advantage of not deforming images whose aspect ratio differs from that of the screen (me: Nate Graham, KDE Plasma 5.15.0)
Next week, your name could be in this list! Not sure how? Just ask! I’ve helped mentor a number of new contributors recently and I’d love to help you, too! You can also check out https://community.kde.org/Get_Involved, and find out how you can help be a part of something that really matters. You don’t have to already be a programmer. I wasn’t when I got started. Try it, you’ll like it! We don’t bite!

Due to the VCDX Defenses in Munich I did not have a lot of time to read blog articles during the week. Normally I take 30 minutes every day, at least, to catch up and read the interesting articles my favourite bloggers wrote. This week I had to prep next days sessions. We had eleven candidates and each of them handed in at least 100 pages of documentation(Design, Test Plans, Ops, etc). But I did manage to catch up yesterday and today, after doing this I came up with the following top 5: Scott Lowe...12.04.2010 Top 5 Planet V12n blog posts week 14 Top 5 Planet V12n blog posts week 14 It seems that podcasts are getting more popular by the day.

Not only did I start on one of the first cloud engagements in EMEA but also one of the largest clouds was implemented in Iceland and because of this (ash) cloud I got stuck in the UK. I wanted to get the weekly top 5 done in the morning but ended up spending my morning on something else and the afternoon walking around in London.
