Trying out the new Caffeine applet in (git), thanks to the hard work of yursan9! Really great for preventing screen dimming and triggering of the lock screen during idle!

Excited to see some progress on getting a new applet landed in Desktop core (as opposed to being a third party applet). Nice work by yursan9 on Caffeine applet port!

You know how I said "should be sorted today" about that whole Settings implementation of the Raven settings thing?

Yea, it's done already.

After I added a feature in Settings for setting the window focus mode, I've started work on showing / hiding Raven widgets! Still gotta implement the Budgie Settings part of this, but the logic is sorted already. Should be sorted today.

Ikey taught Budgie menu a new trick! If you disable category headers, it'll only sort by name. If they're enabled, it'll sort by group & name.

Additionally if you stick it into "super compact" mode, i.e. compact & no headers, it'll hide any duplicates.

He also ported Brisk Menu search + sort logic, so the old re-sort has been drop-kicked so that the menu can just show logically scored items.

Budgie's Alt+Tab will now prefer the theme icon instead of the X11 icon where possible. No more ugly icons messing up your screenshots! mastodon.cloud/media/eeGgCQ2f5

Thanks to the awesome work by Peter O'Connor we now have Qt 5.9 in Solus (actually it's been there since last night).

The theming issue in Qt 5.9 (Gtk styling removed in 5.7) has been resolved in Solus by shipping qtstyleplugins as an update alongside Qt 5 to that apps continue to look and feel native on the GTK desktop experiences.
