Improved input device support in KWin/Wayland

Filed under
KDE

One of the areas I’m currently working on is improving our support for input devices in KWin. While general usage is already quite good in Plasma 5.6, we are not yet able to configure the input devices. This is something I’m working on to improve for Plasma 5.7.

Input devices are provided by libinput and KWin integrates with that for quite some time. What it didn’t do yet is to configure them and keep track of them.

Qt Creator 4.0.0 released

Filed under
KDE

We are happy to announce the release of Qt Creator 4.0.0. Starting with this release, we are making the Clang static analyzer integration, extended QML profiler features and auto test integration (experimental) available under open source. The previously commercial-only connection editor and path editor of Qt Quick Designer were already open sourced with Qt Creator 3.6.0. Qt Creator is now available under commercial license and GPLv3 (with exceptions). The exceptions ensure that there are no license restrictions on generated code, and that bridging to 3rd party code is still possible. You can read more about this change in the blog post announcing it.

  • [Krita] Interview with Toby Willsmer

    Sure, I am originally from the UK but now live in New Zealand. At 44 I have been drawing and illustrating for over 20 years but currently only for myself. I have a love of comics and graphic novels which is pretty much the style I have inherited over the years. By day I’m a Front End Developer and by night I like to let my mind run riot and then draw it.
