    Default What's TT got up its sleeves?

    I'm curious to know if anyone has any information or rumour about what TT has in the pipeline (like Qt 5 and beyond).

    I see Java bindings are coming, any speculation about Mono later on down the line?

    I've searched extensively and greedily lap up any bits of information i can find, but all i've basically come up with is that they're working really hard on 4.x and otherwise playing their cards close to the vest.

    If i could have one wish fulfilled it would be for TT to develop their own x-platform top-of-the-line (and free) IDE. They already have a brillliant forms designer, and they used to have a basic editor, so they're at least a quarter if not half the way there.

    MS hypes future features way in advance, and it works very well to keep developers excited about a product whether or not things turn out as advertised. I personally wish TT would kick their marketing machine into overdrive and generate more excitement in the Qt community.
    Plan? There ain't no plan!

    no rumor but a wish. I'd hope they do more work on the non-GUI parts to make daemon/server/backend type projects easier in QT. Maybe some good IMAP/SMTP/POP3/MIME/LDAP client libraries?

    Sure I can find all manner of various and sundry libs to do that but I'd rather have a nice TT Qt-integrated set of cross platform libraries for that.

    Oh, and UNIX domain sockets as an addition to the TcpServer and UdpServer would be very

    I wish they would make it possible to multiple inherit from QObject.

    Unhappy Re: What's TT got up its sleeves?

    I wish they would fix the QPalette bug that I see so many people posting about.

    Integrating a Qt4 QCanvas and making QSound native are also high priorities for me.

    Later: Thanks to Justin Noel (Glitch) for helping me figure out that QPalette "bug". I just needed to call setAutoFillBackground( TRUE ).

    BTW Justin is an awesome Qt teacher.
