KDE Plasma 5.22.4 is packed with many improvements to make the KDE Plasma 5.22 desktop environment series more stable and reliable, including improved login screen authentication on systems using systemd-homed to no longer fail when entering the wrong password.

Second, it makes the new Plasma System Monitor app a lot faster to launch and improves the ksystemstats daemon, which is used by the Plasma System Monitor app and other sensor widgets for sensor data, to no longer crash on launch on certain systems.

This release also improves the Plasma Wayland session to no longer crash when unplugging or re-plugging certain external displays, and to better support GTK apps when using a high DPI scale factor.
