Qt The Haiku alpha is barely out the door, and we already have another important news item about the open source reimplementation of the BeOS. About 18 months ago, Evgeny Abdraimov started porting the Qt4 graphical toolkit to Haiku, and now, we ave some seriously epic screenshots showing a multitude of Qt4 applications running in Haiku, as well as a developer preview release.

I tried it and it worked great. The Qt (webkit based) demo browser worked no problem and was a lot better than BeZilla, rendered perfectly, also tried a few games, the spreadsheet app, rich text edit and more. All worked without any problems except crashes when exiting the applications. Rendering seemed to be rather quick (though i tested it in a vm so rendering was "just as slow as everything else except bezilla")

The download is a little slow. Here is a mirror.
