Every time I logout/login the desktop is reset or is black due to plasmashell crashing.

Likely that multi-monitor setups or external monitor setups will run into:

This particular update is making my desktop very difficult to use, whereas the previous version had zero issues.

I am also seeing the issues that @xenithorb is seeing. After the update, I see the default wallpaper instead of the one I configured (though strangely, clicking on the "Activities" widget shows my configured background as the one in use?) and the main panel is missing. Right clicking on the desktop and selecting add default or empty panel does not work. I can only start applications with ALT-F2.

I should have mentioned - I also have a docking station with two external monitors, and I do not use the laptop's built in screen when docked.

One more note - I rebooted off of my docking station, and now things do appear to work. Humorously, the three panels that I right clicked to add all appeared, so I had panels on all four of the borders of my laptop's screen. So it does appear that this update just has some problems with external monitors and/or docking stations.

works for me besdies some issues with autostarts and the clock-panel

I have also observed that the special keys (volume, wifi on/off) on top of the keyboard on my Lenovo X1 have stopped working since I applied this update.

@bowlofeggs: I don't see the issue with special keys on my Lenovo E531, so it must be hardware-specific.

I found that two of the "special keys" do actually seem to work - the brightness up and brightness down buttons.

After being off dock for a while I decided to go back to the dock but after three cold and three hot boots I couldn't get my external monitors to activate at all, so I used a dnf distro-sync to get back to stable KDE.

Even after the distro-sync I couldn't get the monitors to turn back on until I unplugged power from the docking station and plugged it back in. Perhaps something got the docking station into a weird state?

I am getting some KIO process failures in various Qt based applications like Amarok and KeePassX. I am going to start a discussion in mailing list
