QextMDI-1.0.0 released.

It's a Qt-extension widget set for MDI that is an alternative to QWorkspace. Compared to QWorkspace, your application is configurable in several modes - MDI like QWorkspace and Unix-like with all windows as toplevel. You can compile QextMDI as a KDE2 extension library, it then bases on KMainWindow and kdeui.so. You can decorate the MDI views with Win9x, KDE1 and default-KDE2 windowmanager style.

to KDE 2. It works by data mining the
differences in core library usage among
applications that come in the main distribution.
In addition, CodeWeb continues to demonstrate
typical library usage much like
KDE tutorials using "reuse patterns" and real-life code as examples of those patterns. See the CodeWeb page at SourceForge for a demo and documentation.
