Qt A Jolla (Sailfish) developer and a Canonical (Ubuntu Phone) developer walk into a KDE/Plasma IRC channel, and fire up a conversation about the QML component API. Not long after, the first fruits of this conversation become apparent. Aaron Seigo (who uses punctuation these days!): "Well, one thing led to another and Zoltan posted an email to the Qt Components mailing list summing up the conversation and proposing we bring our APIs into better alignment. We hope to address issues of API drift between the various component sets out there. This is a pain point others have identified, such as in this recent blog post by Johan Thelin. There is much work to be done before we can even think of calling this a success, but it's the right sort of start." Great news.

This is exactly how things should be. Great job on everyone's part for getting together and at least working towards relieving pain points.

To me this is one of the undeniable upsides to collaborative software and transparent development.

Keep on iterating on QML, it's a gold mine for Linux if they can keep improving it at this speed.
