meta-kf5 usable

Finally I’ve had the time to work over the final issues in meta-kf5. Right now, I build most tier 1 and tier 2 components. I’ve packaged most functional modules and integration modules from these tiers. When it comes to integration modules, there might be missing dependencies that need to be added – but that should […]

meta-kf5 – almost there…

So, as of tonight, all but three tier 1 modules from kf5 are built in meta-kf5. The ones remaining are KApiDox, which does not really apply, and KConfig and Sonnet, which both needs to be part built for the native host environment, and part cross compiled.

meta-kf5 progress report

The meta-kf5 Yocto  layer is coming along nicely. Most of the modules are proving to be fairly easy to integrate, much thanks to the excellent ground work in meta-qt5, including the cmake_qt5 bbclass. My plan for the summer vacation was to do one module a day, so around 5 would be ok. Until now I’ve […]

It is always nice to meet the Qt developer team, and to get a chance to hang out with the Pelagicorians from our Munich office. This conference really acts as a good balance to Qt Developer Days. Where QtDD consists […]

One week of Jolla

So I’ve enjoyed my first few days as a Jolla user. Before I start discussing Jolla and SailFishOS, something about my phone background. I’ve come from Symbian S60, to the N900, then N9 followed by various Androids before getting my Jolla just before Christmas (great timing – thanks!). This means that I came from a […]

Having announced qmlbook.org yesterday, the reception has been fantastic! Over two thousand unique visitors from all over the world (see the map below) and almost 8000 page views. Add to this that we clashed with the Qt 5.2 release announcement, and I’m overwhelmed.
