The SDDM team is proud to announce the release 0.13.0 of SDDM, the Simple Desktop Display Manager.

SDDM is made possible thanks to the collaborative work of the Hawaii, KDE and LXDE projects, as well as the help and contributions from dozens of other developers.

Change log:

  • Greeter inherits path environment variables from parent so that themes installed in non-standard paths will work.
  • Add ENABLE_PAM option to toggle PAM support at build time.
  • Allow overriding textColor in ComboBox.
  • Don't cast QByteArray to (char *).
  • Disable greeters from loading KDE's debug hander (fix CVE-2015-0856).
  • Fix multi-screen support for some setups.
  • Added Serbian translation.
  • Added Traditional Chinese translation.
  • Improved German translation.
  • Remove failsafe session entry.
