Any plans on updating this from 0.11.1? Latest is 0.13.1 right now.

Cool notebook. But for some reason I can’t open other files at once in a new tab. (KDE 5.62.0 / Plasma 5.16.5)

May I respectfully ask you drop this package for others to take up if you can't reasonably keep it up to date?

Please add qt5-tools as a build depency. It is mentioned in the github page and overcomes the build error mentioned below.
