I’ve been browsing youtube today and I was pretty suprised to find some hardcore music videos on it. I’ve spent a little time just looking for bands that I enjoy listening to. So, in no particular order, here’s what I am listening to:Shelter – Here We GoThrowdown – ForeverHoods – The King Is DeadH2O – […]

Perspective transformations in main

Posted in Aggregated

Today I merged qt-perspective branch into qt-main. Yesterday I fixed some issues with bilinear filters and some minor stroking artifacts and decided that perspective transformations are ready for main stream. We’re hoping to switch snapshots to 4.3 very soon which will allow everyone who considers 4.2 way too stable something pretty unstable to play with […]

Another little KMail feature making me happy

Posted in KDE

So I’ve been using KMail for I think three years now, but I’ve just discovered my new favorite feature: I frequently move mails from my inbox to sub-folders and I’ve always done this using the context menu with ‘Move To’, followed by mouse navigation through a deep hierarchy of menus. Only recently I discovered that […]

Opie FUD

I keep hearing from certain people associated with certain embedded “distributions” that the Opie project has died. That’s fine as an opinion, but then the blame is put squarely on Trolltech, because we haven’t yet GPL’d Qtopia 4, which is quite unfair. Opie project has slowed its development because certain developers have FUD’d it into […]

Qt Jambi and Enums

Published Tuesday September 26th, 2006 | Comments Off on Qt Jambi and Enums
Posted in KDE, Qt

If you’ve looked through the Qt Jambi API, you’ll see that we don’t make use of the Java 5 feature of enumerators for mapping Qt/C++ enums.

Perspective transformations

A really neat feature that Arthur in Qt4 was lacking was support for perspective transformations. QMatrix is an affine transformation class. Even though our docs advertise it as a 3×3 matrix it’s actually 2×3. I’ve been wanting to do perspective transformations in Qt for a while. With Qt 4.2 frozen I had a chance to […]

Posted in Graphics Items, Graphics View, KDE, Labs, Qt

During this summer of pre-4.2 testing, we got many feature requests from you all, customers and Open Source’rs, and I’d like to pull out one of the things we decided to implement as a result of this. Item obscurity: being able to determine whether an item is obscured, or not. The idea is that any […]

Posted in Qt, Uncategorized

I really need to get into the habit of this blog thing. Anyway, I needed a small break from what I was doing before I head up to the cafeteriafor lunch. I somehow managed to volunteer for giving 3 presentations during Trolltech Developer Days 2006. I’m mostly done with the multi-threading presentation; I just have […]
