I’ve been working on a new rasterizer to replace the Freetype rasterizer for aliased painting in the raster paint engine, which is used on Windows and when rendering to a QImage. The new rasterizer is scheduled to be part of Qt 4.4, and is already available in the snapshots. The performance of rasterizing various paths with QRasterizer compared to the Freetype rasterizer can bee seen in the following figure: And the same results in table form: […]

Posted in KDE, Qt, Threads

Yesterday, I closed task 168853, the “provide a cross-platform atomic API” task.

These classes provide atomic operations for integers and pointers, respectively. At the moment, each class supports atomic […]

Deploying Mac Applications Without the Hassle

As the mac deployment guide points out, creating said bundles involves copying in the Qt frameworks (and plugins), and then fiddling with the install names using otool and install_name_tool. […]

I was on vacations last week but I’m being all jealous of my luggage. It got a free trip around the world. During my last 8 flights my luggage has been lost 5 times. Is that a record? Confetti anyone? It’s a celebration. If you’re going to meet me during any of the upcoming conferences […]

Java GUI developers, suffer no more ;-)
