Qtâs Volker Hilsheimerâ

,----[ Quote ]
| As powerful and comprehensive as Qt is, it 
| requires C++ skills. We are aiming very 
| high with Qt, and Qt Quick came from a 
| desire to open the framework up to even 
| more developers than what is possible now. 
| To do that we needed to build something 
| within Qt that allows developers or UI 
| designers with diverse skill sets outside 
| of C++ â like JavaScript or Flash for 
| example â to use Qt to build nice, rich, 
| touch-enabled UIs .
| Qt Quick works by combining an enhanced Qt 
| Creator IDE, a new easy-to-learn 
| declarative language that will be instantly 
| familiar to many developers (QML) and a new 
| module in the Qt library called 
| QtDeclarative.


KDE Accessibility tools

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux is certainly available for everyone. 
| And with the right tools, it is even 
| possible to make it available to those with 
| disabilities. Both KMag and KMouseTool 
| makes Linux possible for those who might 
| not have been able to without such tools.


KatchTV is an "Internet TV" application for KDE, otherwise known as a broadcatcher. 

,----[ Quote ]
| KatchTV is very similar to Democracy TV, 
| but focuses on KDE integration, using 
| KHTMLPart and embedded players such as 
| kaffeine. It's much faster, and lighter on 
| resources if you run a KDE desktop without 
| GTK apps.



KDE SC 4.5.0 â Beta 2 â Another Quick Look

,----[ Quote ]
| Obviously, the move from beta 1 to beta 2
| wonât bring any new features, however, as I
| continue to use the KDE SC 4.5 betas, Iâm
| continuing to discover the small improvements
| that arenât obvious at first blush. Whilst
| there arenât a huge number of new features in
| this release, 4.5 is bringing a level of
| polish that will serve as a solid foundation
| for the next steps in the evolution of the KDE
| desktop.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
