Two suggestions for the Ctrl+Tab feature:
1) It would be convenient if the Esc key would cancel the switching action (in case one does not find what one is looking for). Like in Plasma's Alt+Tab.
2) I often work with structures with many files that have the same name (e.g. README.md). It would help to identify the correct file if parts of the filepath (e.g. starting from the git repo root) where displayed before the baseame.
Proposed patch: https://phabricator.kde.org/D10306 for master branch.
@Gregor, the patch only addresses your issue #1.
--> Please only one issue per bug report.
Issue #2 can at least be worked around by using the quick open feature, which provides this feature (by default Ctrl+Alt+o).
