i arrived in trysil, norway last night for the kde four core library hackathon.
we are in a lodge with grass on the roof and pine wood covering most of the interior, except for the floors which are beautiful tile. the view is magnificent, looking down into a forested valley with a river running through it. the sun is shining, a light breeze is blowing. this is the perfect place to sit and hack without distractions.
there are already over 15 of us here with more set to arrive this evening. qt 4.2 is in qt-copy, kdelibs builds against it, there's a copy of kdebase in branches/work/bleedingedge that we will be working on against trunk/kdelibs, icrecream is humming and the meeting is coming to order nicely.
i've already seen some cool qt demos while here, including one that uses the java bindings ... they are amazing. the resulting apps are fast and good looking. other cool stuff are the new docker window animations in qmainwindow which are just gorgeous and smooth.
over the week i'll be blogging at least daily, though i'll try and post something in both the morning and the evening. we'll see how it goes. the entries will likely be a little technical heavy, but so be it =)
i get the feeling more than ever that kde4 really takes off here ..... =)
