Being able to do good printing one of those requests that come up very often. probably more often then “World peace” and “How to avoid hangovers after drinking too much”. Like with world peace, the final answer is not going to be provided for quite some years yet. The topic is just too complex for […]

As I’m new to this blog space, I thought I’d introduce myself. People reading planetkde.org certainly know me already, as I have been working on KWord for ages, with loads of blogs there about the cool new things that KOffice2 will bring. Me moving to this site is a direct extension of that work, since […]

Published Tuesday September 18th, 2007 | 22 Comments on Qt/Windows Open Source Edition to support VS Express
Posted in KDE, News, Qt

So here is more dramatic news following the Qtopia Phone is completely GPL announcement. A couple of years back, we made a big move by Open Sourcing Qt for Windows. The Open Source edition of Qt/Windows supported only MinGW (and MinGW/MSYS starting Qt 4.3). The MSVC Makefile, project generator and the Integration was available only […]

XPath & XQuery in Qt

Posted in Aggregated, Patternist, Qt

The Qt snapshots now includes support for XPath 2.0 and XQuery 1.0. Being part of the XML library, the idea is that Qt 4.4 will ship with a C++ API for running and evaluating such queries. On the side too, is a command line tool called patternist, for quickly testing queries, scripting and old-school web […]

My first commit to KDE SVN

Published Monday September 10th, 2007 | 3 Comments on My first commit to KDE SVN
Posted in KDE, Qt

I just submitted a backport of QGraphicsItem::CacheMode to KDE4 SVN. The change is in Plasma::Widget, and gives Plasma the same speed boost that Qt 4.4’s QGraphicsItem eventually will have. For those interested, the change is also available in ftp://ftp.trolltech.com/qt/snapshots . Which is all of course completely irrelevant. The important thing is – it’s my first […]

Posted in Graphics View, KDE, Qt

But we’re (surprisingly?) not a huge lot of people working on Qt’s 1000000 lines of code, and many of us […]

As an opensource developer you could go ahead and download the Qt source packages and build the database drivers from scratch, and the commercial owners that were curious got a special […]

Today was my last at Trolltech. Some of you already knew that, the others are likely getting mouth to mouth reciprocation right now while a heavy set man is charging defibrillator paddles next to them (breath, breath!). Technically Qt is years ahead of all of its competition and with Trolltech’s amazing engineering team it will […]
