    Feature removal / deprecation


    The KDE4 VCL backend is deprecated and will be removed in the next version.

    The GTK+2 VCL backend is deprecated and will be removed in a future version.

    Platform Compatibility


    Version 6.2 requires at least macOS 10.9. The next version will require at least macOS 10.10.


    - Digital signing now uses the CNG API instead of legacy CryptoAPI, finally allowing usage of ECDSA keys on Windows blog post (Miklos Vajna - Collabora)


    Binary Linux x86 (32-bit) releases will be demoted. There will be no Linux x86 builds produced by TDF after 6.2. This does not mean that Linux x86 compatibility will be removed.

    KDE 5 + Qt5

    Two new VCL plugins (qt5 and kde5) have been implemented (with the KDE5 plugin extending the Qt5 one) to provide integration into KDE Plasma 5 and other Qt5-based desktop environments, mainly implemented by Katarína Behrens (CIB) and Jan-Marek Glogowski (City of Munich).

    If the kde5 and the gtk3_kde5 plugins are installed, the desktop detection will now prefer the kde5 one. The qt5 plugin must be explicitly selected via SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=qt5, as it's never selected automatically.

    Currently implemented features include:

    • Native widget rendering
    • Native Plasma file and folder picker
    • Native menus including Plasma global menu integration
    • Dual screen support
    • System clipboard integration
    • Basic native drag'n'drop
    • Basic accessibility support (Samuel Mehrbrodt, CIB)

    Bugs and missing features are tracked via the KDE meta bug tdf#102495.

    Technical note: The qt5 plugin implements two rendering paths: an experimental QPainter based one and the Cairo based one, which is also used by all other Unix plugins. The kde5 plugin uses only the Cairo rendering path. The qt5 plugin defaults to the QPainter rendering path, but it's possible to force the Cairo path using the environment variable SAL_VCL_QT5_USE_CAIRO.
