The planned KDE Frameworks 5.64.0 release is part of a monthly release series designed to quickly and predictably make improvements available to developers.

The KDE Frameworks 5.64.0 release introduces over 200 changes to KDE’s open-source software suite to improve stability, security, reliability, and the overall performance of the KDE Plasma desktop and its related applications.

Significant changes included in the 5.64.0 release include support for the CMake 3.5 series of open-source and cross-platform package building tools, initial support for the soon-to-be-released Qt 5.15 open-source, cross-platform application framework, and new and updated icons.  Also, the KDE Frameworks 5.54.0 release fixes multiple identified memory leaks and crashes.

Other noteworthy changes include support for Simultaneous Authentication of Equals (SAE) authentication, debchangelog support for the upcoming Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (Focal Fossa) operating system, and WPA3 secure password-based authentication and password-authenticated key agreement method.

Some of the major libraries with updates are Attica, KConfig, KTextEditor, ThreadWeaver, and more. Further information, including the full changelog, is available in the official KDE announcement.  Details of the KDE Framework are available on the official KDE Framework website.
