The Breeze GTK theme (which is useful if you run GTK apps on the KDE desktop) also benefits from some attention.
KDE Applications 16.04.3 ups the ante on the productivity side, shipping new versions of core applications like the Dolphin file manager as well as a few new ones, including a brand new screenshot tool called ‘Spectacle’.
