Sebastian Sauer Talks About Scripting with Kross

Filed under
KDE
Interviews

Kross is the scripting engine for KOffice and provides a complete framework to embed scripting interpreters transparently into native applications and bridge the static and dynamic worlds together.

KDE does provide a rich set of bindings for different languages. PyQt/PyKDE, QtRuby/Korundum and even developing KDE-related tasks with Java and C# is supported.

If it comes to embedded scripting the choice gets cut down to QSA and KjsEmbed which both provide an embedded JavaScript-interpreter with a very small subset of the functionality that existing modules and 3rd-party supported languages like Python or Ruby are enjoying. There is no CPAN-like collection of 3rd party modules for nearly anything, maintained and improved by large communities and reusable for your own tasks.

The open source world is about choices, about reusing functionality and about flexibility. So, why not increase the number of supported languages which could be embedded into an application?

Full Story.

Linux 3.18 Kernel: Not Much Change With Intel Haswell Performance

For those wondering whether there will be any exciting improvements with the Intel DRM graphics driver in the Linux 3.18 kernel, here's some OpenGL performance benchmarks. At least when carrying out performance tests with Mesa Git master (now at Mesa 10.5.0-devel), there doesn't appear to be any significant performance improvements when testing with an Intel Core i7 4770K "Haswell" CPU bearing HD Graphics 4600. When comparing the stable Linux 3.16.0, 3.17.0, and 3.18.0 Git daily kernels for this system with standard HD Graphics 4600, there really isn't exciting about this latest Linux kernel. Read more
