[Qt] SVG: parsing and content optimization

,----[ Quote ]
| Still, I decided to have a look, just in case there are low-hanging fruits 
| I can grab. And I was right, far from being an SVG expert, with just two 
| days of work I managed to squeeze its performance a bit, which you'd enjoy 
| already in the recent 4.6 preview.
| [...]
| As you can see, Qt 4.6 would enjoy a bit of speed-up (in some cases up to 
| 1.4x) when loading and parsing SVG.

Fast Compositing with KDE4 and FGLRX

,----[ Quote ]
| After a much heated discussion about how to fix the horrible resizing and
| performance bug with FGLRX and KDE4, no one knew where to start looking. The X
| team had to do a little digging; the KDE4 team needed to change somethings; the
| FGLRX warehouse needed to get their shit together and listen to the usersâ bla
| bla bla the flame wars raged on, fingers were pointed, and nothing ever got done.


Multimedia frameworks in Qt

| Iâve also started the work on an advanced configuration dialog for Phonon-Xine,
| like the Xine configuration dialog in Codeine (the Xine-based video player in KDE
| 3), exposing all the available options, without having to edit the config file by
| hand.

KDE 4.3 âCaizenâ Review

,----[ Quote ]
| That probably covers the main features in the release especially the ones
| Iâve liked. Overall its is stable and the KDE developers themselves have
| said â âKDE 4.3 offers a more stable and complete product for the home and
| small office.â I think this was the release we were all waiting for in terms
| of stability and features as well.

A first look at KDE 4.3

,----[ Quote ]
| If you've been avoiding KDE 4 because of that, or other issues, it's finally
| time to give it a try. I think you'll find, as I have, that this new KDE is
| finally ready to compete with its older sibling KDE 3.5.11 and GNOME 2.26 for
| anyone's Linux desktop.
