In addition, the KIO library was improved in this release to correctly handle non-file-based URLs registered to apps, such as tg:// for Telegram links or mailto:// for email addresses, when the apps advertise that they accept URLs. Also, Dolphin now launches faster when there are multiple ISO images mounted or Snap apps installed.
