Public bug reported:

The latest release is v1.3.3, but somehow v1.3.1 is still shipped to latest 
Kubuntu systems.
Test: try updating KDEConnect to latest version through `apt`
Current: v1.3.1 is the latest version
Expected: v1.3.3 is the latest version

System: Fresh install of Kubuntu 18.04

P.S:  the latest companion app (See: ) involves a breaking 
change for people with old version(1.3.1) of KDEConnect.
v1.3.3 was released two months ago

Solution Proposed: Please check manually


Changes since 1.3.1:

- [Security fix] Don't disable all modern SSH encryption algorithms.
- Remote media player info didn't update under some circumstances.
- Remove characters from commands UUIDs that aren't legal in URLs.
- New notifications now appear on top and not in the bottom of the list in
the plasmoid.
- Dismiss notifications icon is now consistent with the one in Plasma.

Changes since 1.3.2:
- Fix crash when linking against KIO 5.51

Also note that file browsing using KDE Connect won't work unless the
desktop app is at least version 1.3.2, as we have already rolled out the
Android app with the matching security fix.

[Test Case]

 * File browsing - Pair with a device running the latest android app,
and confirm that file browsing of the target device is possible again.

* Other fixes, verify where issues can be reproduced on original package

[Regression Potential]

* Low as this updates has been released for several months with no major
regressions reported upstream. However, regular users of KDE connect
should verify that functionality they normally use has not regressed.
