Besides monitoring the Linux kernel merge window
for its interesting features, another project with an active merge window worth tracking right now is for Qt 5.0
. The merge window on Qt 5.0 will close at the beginning of February.
Lars Knoll of Nokia sent out a reminder email
this morning that there's just one month left until the feature freeze for this major Qt5 tool-kit update will go into effect. In that email he also brings up the discussion about what the feature freeze should mean and how it should be handled, under this new Qt Project structure.
For those wanting to see about some of the Qt 5.0 work, see the 5.0 feature targets Wiki page
, graphical advancements, better platform abstraction
(Wayland Display Server support), and other features. A feature overview of Qt 5.0 can be found from the tentative Qt 5.0 developer documentation
. Qt 5.0 can also be made for use in web applications inside your browser
To find out more or give the early Qt 5.0 code a shot, the source-code is accessible from the Qt5 Git repository
. Qt 5.0 will be officially released later in 2012.
