KDE hacker authors Qt book

Filed under
Misc

Core KDE developer Daniel Molkentin has written a book about Trolltech's cross-platform application development toolkit. Published by NoStarch Press, and entitled, "The Book of Qt 4," the work aims to help novice and advanced users write user-friendly Qt applications.

Qt is a mature C++ application development framework designed to let software engineers compile native-looking Linux, Mac, and Windows binaries from a single source code tree. Some of the better-known applications based on Qt include Skype, Google Earth, and Adobe Photoshop Elements. Additionally, Motorola uses an embedded version of Qt -- Qtopia Core (formerly "Qt/Embedded") -- in its Linux-based mobile phones. Qt and Qt/embedded were released under the GPL in 2000.

Qt also underpins KDE.

    In a yet-to-be peer-reviewed study published on Freedom To Tinker, a site hosted by Princeton's Center for Information Technology Policy, three researchers document how third-party tracking scripts have the capability to scoop up information from Facebook's login API without users knowing. The tracking scripts documented by Steven Englehardt, Gunes Acar, and Arvind Narayanan represent a small slice of the invisible tracking ecosystem that follows users around the web largely without their knowledge.
