Qt 5 Alpha Launches: Fluid Touch Experiences

Filed under
Software

In what is seen as a major overhaul to the cross-platform application and user interface framework, Qt 5 Alpha has been released in advance of the full-blown iteration, which is expected later this year.

Under its Nokia parent, Qt appears to have transitioned to a state where it accommodates for (and promotes the adoption of) so-called "fluid touch based experiences" common to contemporary devices. Used extensively across the smartphone (and desktop) landscape, Qt also enjoys considerable deployment within embedded applications seen in areas such as medicine and healthcare.

The underwater survey indicated that Antarctic sea ice was thicker than had been previously estimated. Read more

DragonFlyBSD 4.0 Drops i386 Support, Improves Graphics

The much anticipated release of DragonFlyBSD 4.0 is now available. The biggest "big ticket item" of DragonFlyBSD 4.0 include improving graphics support with the Linux-ported Intel DRM driver now handling Intel "Haswell" graphics complete with OpenGL support, well more than one year after it's been optimized for Linux users. DragonFlyBSD 4.0 is also significant in that it drops 32-bit i386 support in making it 64-bit only for x86 systems. While the DRM driver porting takes a while across all BSD distributions right now, at least DragonFlyBSD developers can take a stand for pushing forward and focusing on 64-bit support rather than 32-bit.
