Big announcement (sort of...)
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


See User information
As I am already spamming this forum, I might as well just give away one other "small" thingy:

(TRUMPETS!)

I will be porting Qt 5.2 asap!

(FADING TRUMPETS...........!)

Ok, I have actually not gotten much further with this than making the actual decision. So don't expect anything (as in anything-at-all) within the next 3-4 months. But with that said, I think I owe this to the community, to have an updated Qt port. I just love the enthusistic atmosphere around here, and I am pleased to say, that it all feels meaningful, despite all the small quarels over which browser is better, and "when can we have this-and-that feature", and a nagging feeling of despair every time my friends tell me, that I am crazy and that it doesn't make any sense to be so dedicated to a platform with "such little prospect"... Well, call me crazy, but I think we have the best OS with regards to many things: speed, clarity, overall friendliness, history for that matter and, uhm, this 'feeling' or 'touch' or 'smell', that makes development worthwile, and not just some other way to make dough...

Ahem, and all touchy-feely notions put aside: Let's make some more software!

Have fun with your X1000 and Qt project but please, don't forget, there are slower machines, too

That's an excellent news because using the latest framework we may earn the necessary speed, rumors say that QT5 is a lot faster than the old version 4 !

infact the biggest problem is only there .. still of course many minor glitch here and there in our current release, however as usual all bugs are in general fixable (not a huge issue to the end), but if apps are slow because the framework it will be very hard to use them, expecially our current "poor" hardware, an additional problem too ..

Aniway good luck and as usual count on me for any kind of future betatesting

I know some people don't like the word, but I think you just gave a good description of what a "hobby" is (or can be). And nothing wrong with that I think, as long as you enjoy it

Woo-hoo!

Maybe finish what you're doing on 4.7 first though, eh?

I will make everything so that Qt4.7 is usable for everyone, before moving on.

Well, I haven't really read up on the details. But for one thing, it is (apparently) going to be easier to port, given that it uses a new abstraction layer for platforms ("Lighthouse" I think was the codename for it). Also, rumours will it, that text rendering has improved somewhat (Calligra/KOffice looks nicer with newer Qt). And I am not entirely sure about this, but I think it might need OpenGL for the rendering, which, if true, means, that we are stuck with MiniGL for the time being.
