  • #31: GSoC with KDE Now – 9
  • Interview with Shane Semler

    I’ve known about it for a long time but only recently did I consider it seriously as a replacement for GIMP or Photoshop. Adobe keeps raising the price of their subscription and I simply couldn’t afford it any longer. I tried switching to GIMP but its performance at high resolutions (each page of the comic is 6000 x 10,000 pixels) was dismal. I looked at a few commercial options but was unhappy with either the price, performance or brush engine. I finally broke down and gave Krita a try. The last time I had given it a look it seemed like a QT GIMP with less features. Granted, this was many years ago so my memory is a bit hazy. The point is, I didn’t have a good impression of it. Anyway, I tried 2.8x and liked it and the price can’t be beat.

  • The Qt Quick Graphics Stack in Qt 5.8

    When Qt Quick 2 was made available with the release of Qt 5.0, it came with the limitation that support for OpenGL (ES) 2.0 or higher was required. The assumption was that moving forward OpenGL would continue its trajectory to be the hardware acceleration API of choice for both desktop, mobile and embedded development. Fast forward a couple years down the road to today, and the graphics acceleration story has gotten more complicated. One assumption we made was that the price of embedded hardware with OpenGL GPUs would continue to drop and they would be ubiquitous. This is true, but at the same time there are still embedded devices available without OpenGL-capable GPUs where customers continue to wish to deploy Qt Quick applications. To remedy this we released the Qt Quick 2D Renderer as separate plugin for Qt Quick in Qt 5.4.

  • Qt Quick 2's Graphics State For Qt 5.8

    Qt developers Laszlo Agocs and Andy Nchols have written a summary on The Qt Blog about the state of the Qt Quick 2 graphics stack for the upcoming Qt 5.8 release.

    While Qt Quick 2 was introduced in Qt 5.0 with a requirement on OpenGL/OpenGLES 2.0+, the developers realized that was ultimately not enough and they have been working to make OpenGL-free back-end options to fit more of their user/customer needs.

  • OpenGL changes in KWin compositing

    In Plasma 5.8 we will see a few changes in the OpenGL compositor which are worth a blog post.

  • KDE Plasma 5.8 To Finally Allow LLVMpipe, Drops EGL On X11 Option

  • KDE's Kirigami UI Framework Gets its First Public Release

    Kirigami, KDE’s lightweight user interface framework for mobile and convergent applications, which was first announced in March, is now publicly released! This framework allows Qt developers to easily create applications that run on most major mobile and desktop platforms without modification (though adapted user interfaces for different form-factors are supported and recommended for optimal user experience). It extends the touch-friendly Qt Quick Controls with larger application building blocks, following the design philosophy laid out in the Kirigami Human Interface Guidelines.

  • KDE Kirigami UI Framework Makes First Debut
  • KDE Announces the First Public Release of Their Kirigami UI Framework for Mobile

    Today, August 10, 2016, KDE's Thomas Pfeiffer has had the great honor of announcing the availability of the first public release of the Kirigami UI (User Interface) framework for building mobile and convergent applications.

    Work on the Kirigami user interface framework started back in March 2016, when the KDE development team announced their plans for creating one of the most powerful and sophisticated tool that would allow application developers to build cross-platform Qt-based apps for mobile platforms.

Distro Development: Rescatux and Bodhi

  • Rescatux 0.40 beta 9 released
    Many code in the grub side and in the windows registry side has been rewritten so that these new features could be rewritten. As a consequence it will be easier to maintain Rescapp. Finally the chntpw based options which modify the Windows registry now perform a backup of the Windows registry files in the unlikely case you want to undo some of the changes that Rescapp performs. I guess that in the future there will be a feature to be able to restore such backups from Rescapp itself, but, let’s focus on releasing an stable release. It’s been a while since the last one. UEFI feedback is still welcome. Specially if the Debian installation disks work for you but not the Rescatux ones.
  • Bodhi 4.0.0 Updates and July Donation Totals
    Late last month I posted a first alpha look at Bodhi 4.0.0. Work since then has been coming along slowly due to a few unpredictable issues and my own work schedule outside of Bodhi being hectic over the summer. Bodhi 4.0.0 will be happening, but likely not with a stable release until September. I am traveling again this weekend, but am hoping to get out a full alpha release with 32bit and non-PAE discs next week.
