Breaking prior record of 1836 tracked jobs on the repo server during this sync with 1988 (few jobs completed before I could take screenshot) 🏆

Note: Doesn't mean that's how many packages changed, just how many deltas for them and their sub-packages we're creating. Still though!

It's time for The Roundup #17, your bytes of Solus news. In this roundup, we’re talking about our new desktop icons implementation for Budgie :budgie: , GNOME :gnome: 3.38, KDE and Plasma :plasma: updates, and more! 🎉

Congrats to Staudey on creating the 10000th patch to our development tracker! Absolutely incredible to see this many contributions to various packages by volunteers from around the world. You're all amazing. 🎉

True story: Solus :solus: contributor EbonJaeger introduced a Raven position option coming in Budgie :budgie: 10.5.2 that allows you to choose whether or not to let Budgie handle Raven positioning itself, or always open it on the left or right side! 🎉

Some new goodies for :plasma: are landing on unstable by Solus Plasma and KDE maintainer Girtablulu at the moment! Get ready for an update of:

- QT 5.15.1
- :kde: Applications 20.8.2
- KDE Framework 5.75
- Plasma Desktop 5.20.1

🎉

But as always, if you use the unstable repo, wait to update until we give the okay inside our IRC development channel, it's gonna take a while to build everything. Stable repo is still obviously not affected. 😀
