Upgrading from previous releases

Amarok

KWin

  • Due the nature of how Wayland support is implemented in KWin 4.11, it cannot be completed during the 4.x life cycle and outstanding bugs can usually not be fixed. Proper Wayland support will be implemented in Plasma Workspaces 2.

Nepomuk

  • Nepomuk’s optimized storage format and rewritten e-mail indexer require reindexing some of the hard drive’s content. Consequently the reindexing run will consume an unusual amount of computing performance for a certain period – depending on the amount of content that needs to be reindexed. An automatic conversion of the Nepomuk database will run on the first login.
