2022.10.30: TDE R14.0.13 is here!

The Trinity Desktop Environment development team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the TDE R14.0.13 release.



TDE is a free/libre lightweight desktop environment intended for computer users preferring a lean and efficient experience. It is available for various Linux distros, BSD and DilOS.
Low on system requirements, it is also an ideal choice for dated hardware, while still providing a fully usable desktop.
Born from the ashes of KDE 3.5.10 in 2010, TDE is a fully independent project with its own personality, community and development team.

This release comes with fixes for both CVE-2020-12755 (FISH protocol) and KMail's EFAIL vulnerabilities.
It adds Markdown support in Kate, a new window style (twin-style-machbunt), a new tdeioslave protocol to gather application information (tdeio-appinfo), several improvements to GUI interaction and a new SFTP tdeioslave based on libssh.
It also solves the issue with opening files from media:/ and system:/media/ URLs from non-TDE applications and is compatible with OpenSSL 3.0 API.

We would like to thank all the people who have contributed to the preparation of this release and we are looking forward for further contributions in future.
