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.

You are probably not following the port's mailing list or the source code repository. Andrew Bachmann has been pushing code in heaps into it recently, so it's anything but dead. See http://mail.openjdk.java.net/pipermail/haiku-port-dev/2009-October/... for the current patches going in.

Expect a bigger torrent of code as soon as my SCA is finally accepted to the public contributors database.

For some reason, the one I submitted several years ago did not 'take'.

Andrew is the acting 'admin' of the project. I handed control over to him last year, after selling all my old BeOS R5 books and hardware.

God I miss BeOS. Booted the Haiku nightly last week on a borrowed laptop. Literally brought tears to my eye. My wife made fun of me. :-p

You are always welcome back. Even if it's just for some minor hacking ;)
