Qt - 20 years leading cross-platform development

Today we celebrate 20 years since the first release of Qt was uploaded to sunsite.unc.edu and announced, six days later, at comp.os.linux.announce. Over these years, Qt evolved from a two person Norwegian project to a full-fledged, social-technical world-wide organism that underpins free software projects, profitable companies, universities, government-related organizations, and more. It's been an exciting journey.

GCompris Fundraiser

The work on unified graphics for GCompris was completed in the time allocated by the fundraiser. Here is a video to show the result.

15% of the goal was funded, so not all of the work could be completed in the time proposed. But there are updates to all the core components, the main menu with all the activities icons and a good bunch of activities.

Performance and Animation: Krita Kickstarter Kicks Off

Last year, we held the first Kickstarter campaign for Krita. We raised more than €20,000 for Krita development, blowing past the fundraising goal. Thanks to this funding, a year later a dozen new features have been implemented, ranging from transform masks to High Dynamic Range (HDR) painting, from layer styles to improved vector objects. The Krita team did all that was promised...and much more.
