It got linked from reddit and ycombinator and comments there and in the previous post have raised some interesting questions I’ll try to answer. LD_PRELOAD First, a quck background: LD_PRELOAD and …

Sorry state of dynamic libraries on Linux

Qt temperatures drop from January to June

I’ve previously talked about how the Qt 5 Winter is coming.

KDE Community releases 4.7

Kinda weird to blog on Planet KDE about a KDE release, especially when it’s also announced on the Dot, but I’d like to take the opportunity to congratulate everyone who worked on it! See the full announcement. Mandatory screenshot leeched off the announcement: I am, of course, running something close to the 4.7 release. I …

Qt 4.8 beta 1 released

I’ve just realised that neither Eckhart’s post nor the QtWebKit post were aggregated on either Planet KDE nor Planet MeeGo. Quoting: It has been some weeks since we released the Qt 4.8 Technology Preview to the community. The release raised a lot of interest and we have received many comments in response to the Qt …
