Multimedia, AV Not too long ago, Apple added the Video Decode Acceleration framework to Mac OS X, allowing developers to get low-level access to hardware H264 acceleration. Adobe was quite thrilled about this, because they claimed this was needed for Flash video to become hardware accelerated on the Mac. This feature's been in beta for a while now, but yesterday they finally released it as part of a regular Flash Player update. Caveat: Apple's support for this framework can be a bit sketchy.

You make it sound like there are a lot of choices, but really it comes down to Qt or GTK.

Being kind of biased, I would say that it just comes down to Qt.

Qt is the most-portable, modern, feature rich GUI library right now.

GTK+ is, though interesting, already showing its age.

Qt is awesome. I wasn't comparing it to GTK because Qt is a lot more than a GUI toolkit, I just meant that Qt and GTK are primarily the main GUI toolkits that people use to develop Linux apps today.

Adobe porting Photoshop to Qt would be very cool indeed.
