i'm nearly running around the house doing a little dance as the first tech preview for qt 4.2 is released!
recommended reading includes the qt 4.2 introductory information, which reveals we'll have lots of new qt functionality to consider in trysil next week, and lar's blog which notes a few other cool things like the ongoing optimizations and new CSS parser and support for CSS in QWidgets. there's even the dbus bindings, which we are already using in kde, in there! wow.
for me this marks a very important step, however, as it means both graphicsview and svg support is now publicly available to play with. these have been two blockers in plasma's path.
the other major blocker has been kde4 libs really not being in a state i feel comfortable writing new application code against. hopefully many, most or even all of that issue will resolve itself with the kde four core libs meeting in trysil next week.
speaking of which, i'd better start packing my bags as i have to be at the airport in around 7 hours.
