Description 2wxsy58236r3 2021-06-17 01:08:15 UTC

When using KWrite, there is no option to configure number of recent files, and thus it always remembers recent files.

I would like to be able to set the number to 0 for privacy. 

I can set the number in Kate settings and Kate will stop remembering recent files, however KWrite has no equivalent setting.

add simplified session config

this allows some basic stuff to be configured for KWrite

e.g. should it close on last document, how many recent files
and when to clear meta info

as requested in
