hmmm.. re: Joys of Freedom, R.I.P Opie http://zecke.blogspot.com/2006/10/joys-of-freedom-rip-opie.html Life is like the tides and the ocean.. sometimes rushing in, and other times rushing out. Sometimes it is rough and windy, and sometimes it is smooth as glass. Opie is not dead. Slightly dormant, but headed for resurrection. Qtopia is free software, you can still download […]

Posted in KDE, Qt, Qtopia

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. Since we’re already using generics, auto-boxing and other Java 5 features it probably seems a bit strange that we don’t use enums for mapping enums in Qt. The reason […]
