This GSoC project is rather important for several reasons, including:
- QML will play an important role in Qt5
- Using QML will allow to switch easily to QML Scene Graph
- QML makes development and maintenance easier
- QML plasma widgets much less likely crash the plasma shell
I would like to underline that a plasma widget is ported when there are no regressions so no one will notice the difference (anyway I hope they will behave better).
I’ve been working on this GSoC project for nearly a month now and the port of some widgets is almost complete (there are some missing pieces that needs to be addressed but I think they will be ready soon).
Anyway at the Akademy I will talk more about this GSoC project (Sat. 30 at 10.15/Room 2) 🙂
