Feature freeze for 4.4 is closing in. The offices in the dev department are awfully quiet. A bit… too quiet. The snippety-snapping sound of brilliant minds tapping in code, merging changes, polishing APIs, writing tests, reviewing patches. An incredible atmosphere, you would have to just be there to sense it. This is the period of […]

As most of you know Espen went back to Oslo a few months ago after he helped out setting up the Berlin office.

Attention to details is ok, but compiler messages has historically not received it. Here’s an example of GCC’s output: qt/src/xml/query/expr/qcastingplatform.cpp: In member function ‘bool CastingPlatform::prepareCasting(): qt/src/xml/query/expr/qcastas.cpp:117: instantiated from here qt/src/xml/query/expr/qcastingplatform.cpp:85: error: no matching function for call to ‘locateCaster(int)’ qt/src/xml/query/expr/qcastingplatform.cpp:93: note: candidates are: locateCaster(const bool&) Typically compiler messages have been subject to crude printf approaches and […]

For a while now, I’ve been spending my non-bug-fixing time on the Qt Jambi AWT Bridge, an integration layer which will make it possible for you to place your favorite AWT and Swing component hierarchies inside your Qt windows and the other way around. This should hopefully prove to be at least a very convenient […]

Posted in KDE, Qt

For a while now we’ve been plagued with a side-effect of the module separation in Qt 4: some of the goodies are “downstream” from the module we’re developing code on. This is the case for XML: it’s been in its own module (QtXml) and we have been left with no good XML parsing class in […]

An quick example: QFile file(“foo”);; […]
