Qt Trolls (the Trolltech ones) are blogging about a technology preview of the UI designer for QML, integrated to Qt Creator. A youtube video is provided. QML, accompanied by an UI designer, provides an open alternative for piecing together flash-like high-FPS programs with heavily customized and animated user interfaces, built on QGraphicsView framework. While QML allows authoring the whole program in QML markup and Javascript, QML can be incorporated to Qt C++ programs with relative ease.

first of all , *you are making it up* since you are talking about the future. how can you talk certain about the future , if it didnt happen yet ? how do you know it will be buggy and crashy ?

other than that , i have an laptop with an i945 graphics cards ( intel , you know , not even dedicated ) and runs kde 4.4 rc2 very very smooth , its a pleasure to use.

everytime i add a plasmoid to the desktop , or some events happen , i get stable , completly smooth and nice animations or effects.

so , if in the present , there is stable and smooth animations in kde that even work on an intel 945, why would they be buggy and unstable and require a special video card in the future ?

Sorry, I thought I was replying to a different thread. My post makes no sense now that I see the context. Carry on.

Well, I'll reply anyways.

What you got is NOT what I experienced on my T43 with a Radeon X300. While compiz was smooth, as well as xcompmgr, KWin and Qt4 were anything but. I'm not the only one who's complained about KDE 4 performance (not by far).

I'm glad it works on your card and probably 2 or 3 others. For everyone else, it sucks.

you will just have to wait , not for kde , but for ati drivers.

the thing with my video card, intel, is that its drivers usually are the first to get updated into new xorg / mesa tecnologies.

kde makes use of these new technologies.
in my current setup , i have KMS, DRI2, just to name a few all working flawlessly.

so dont be surprised if some day , without changing a thing in kde , you update your drivers and everything works smoothly.

of course , you dont think my i945 is more powerfull than your video card , right ;) hehe

well , forgot to say, i dunno if you follow developments of 3d in xorg / mesa / kernel, but i guess as soon as distros start deploying kernel 2.6.33 and new xorg , you are going to get a treat ;) ( i myself use gentoo , already using latest xorg / mesa and kernel 2.6.32 )

i dont have a radeon , so i cannot really confirm this, but there has been major work in the kernel for it.

also, i think 2.6.33 will have nouveau drivers for nvidia also.

its important that desktop stress the new mesa / gallium / kernel tecnologies, instead of rellying in the old xrender / xlib / xorg hacks ( like compiz does , which is fair since its codebase is being completly rewritten, i hope the new compiz uses the new 3d technologies )
