We Have Liftoff!

Published on Thursday December 10, 2009 by mbm in Qt Graphics Items Graphics View Itemviews KDE | Comments

Some time ago I wrote about our ideas for a new Qt widget set for QGraphicsView.
Up till now we have all been busy working on finishing Qt 4.6, so not much has happened since then.
But, it is now time to quote Hubert J. Farnsworth: "Good news, everyone!". The Next Generation Qt Widgets project is of the ground!

Open Is The New Black

With Qt 4.6 released, we can now dedicate our time to Next Generation Qt Widgets. But we are not the only ones that will be working on this project. In addition to Qt developers, we will also have developers from INdT. And you are hereby invited to join as well!

Jump Into The Fray

First, you want to clone the repository. It is also recommended that you browse the Qt wiki to get familiar with coding conventions and the contribution model. You may also want to read up on the rules. You should now be ready to join the discussions on IRC or on our mailing-list.
We are looking forward to seeing you there! Happy hacking! :)
