KDE In his lengthy and interesting blog post covering the future of Plasma, KDE's Aaron Seigo proposes Qt Quick and QML (a declarative language that embeds JavaScript) as replacement of the Graphics View architecture currently used by Plasma. This holds a promise of massive speedups and cheap effects as all paint operations become candidates for OpenGL acceleration, contrary to the aging Graphics View architecture that is still stuck with various inefficiencies caused by the underlying QPainter approach. Expressiveness and easy programmability of QML is a nice bonus, of course.

Wow! Reading so much comments make me wonder... How many of you actually tried QML? How many of you installed the beta of QtCreator 2.1 and fiddled with it?

Just back from the Qt Developer Days in Munchen and in my perspective QML was the 'buzz of the town'. The presentation about QML (there were a lot on the different aspects and possibilities with QML) we're all ... great!

Is it just me (and Aaron I presume :-) who thinks that with QML (or correctly Qt QUICK) Nokia has developed a great technology?
