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.

I'm sure it'll be great, just like the last 10 releases were. Still won't fix inefficient toolkits and underlying deficiencies in X's rendering model. I'm sure slapping another 3 layers of "acceleration" protocols will fix the problem in time, along with providing a host of new bugs and not supporting hardware that should be accelerable.

actually , what you just said , was posted on a blog by aseigo when developing kde4

they could just use the old buggy hacks of xorg and its 3d , or expose those problems and drive them to improve it.

they exposed it , and things are being reworked completly. hoping gallium will improve things alot.

i just dunno what more to say really !!! you seem to resent linux and kde alot.

just a tip , not really supported by kde devs , but try to use the qt raster engine. see how , although all software based , its much much and i stress much faster than xorg's native engine.

Believe me, I tried all the workarounds. I ran Git master X.org as well as distro provided. Different amounts of suckage.

I know what Aaron said, but that's a terrible excuse. If the same excuse were applied to hardware, then software just wouldn't work at all. You have to have workarounds and hacks...that's just life. Throwing up your hands and not even trying to get Qt and KWin to work on actual hardware with actual drivers is a non-solution. In the real world, you do that and you get fired. Of course, Aaron belongs to that camp that thinks KDE is perfect and any problems are either because of the users or the underlying OS. Well, the underlying OS may not be perfect, but that's no excuse not to make it work. Same goes for users. If your software is so messy that users easily start making mistakes, then perhaps the software needs to be fixed.

Anyways, the point is that I've waited years for this stuff to work and it still doesn't and more scarily, there's a strong sentiment in the community that the problem doesn't exist or that it's someone else's fault.
