KDE sets goals that help the community focus on important things that need to get done in collaboration across many teams.
The current goals are:
- Consistency: As KDE's software evolved small and large inconsistencies creep in that make our software less pleasant to use. It also means having to maintain different implementations of essentially the same component like a scrollbar. We will identify and remove these inconsistencies in all of KDE's software.
- All about the Apps: We want to refocus on KDE's applications and make them easier to discover and install for our users.
- Wayland: We will finalize the transition to Wayland and embrace the future of desktop. This is a necessary step towards a lot of new features and improvements our users want to see, like better touchscreen support.
The process of selecting goals is described in a dedicated page.
