Moreover, thanks to the contribution of some users, redshift plasmoid is being translated in different languages.

Finally I found some time to update redshift plasmoid.

The major change in the new version is the possibility to set the temperature color manually , a.k.a manual mode. To do so you just need to scroll the mouse wheel over the widget and immediately it switch to manual mode, starting to set the color temperature you desire.  Read moreRead more
