Yay! This reached our (FreeBSD) packaging yesterday because the tarballs went 
up on the download site. It leaves me *slightly* scratching my head, because 
of inconsistencies -- that's why I'm CC'ing kde-community, where "All about 
the Apps" is a KDE goal topic and it's good to get more exposure.

So, KDiff3 is not part of the KDE Gear process. That's cool -- that's why we 
get separate release announcements for it :)

I see there's a tag on invent, but no GitLab-style release. Have you 
considered doing those as well? It's one way of making release notes easier to 
find (not just hidden on a mailing list like this one).

The AppData release info was bumped, but only on the release branch; that 
means that KDE's apps pages (e.g. https://apps.kde.org/kdiff3/) still show 
outdated information.

I'm a bit confused by the (AppData) "homepage" URL, since that leads round-
aboutly to the apps page; I think my confusion is because that URL is shown as 
"project homepage" on apps.kde.org, but doesn't effectively do anything. (So 
it's more a website-generator confusion than about your specific app)

Hopefully my comments & questions can lead to better releases for all, both 
Gear and independents without saddling you with any additional work.
