The KDE Applications Bundle is a set of applications and supporting libraries that are designed by the KDE community, primarily used on Linux based operating systems but mostly multiplatform, and released on a common release schedule.

Previously the KDE Applications Bundle was part of the KDE Software Compilation. The bundle is composed of over 100 applications and is in the process of being ported from KDE Platform 4 to KDE Frameworks 5. Examples of prominent applications in the bundle include the file manager Dolphin, document viewer Okular, text editor Kate, archiving tool Ark and terminal emulator Konsole.

The bundle includes KDE Applications and other applications developed by the KDE international free software community, and they are most grouped by how KDE itself uses them.[3]
