"On Saturday evening Matthias Ettrich, director of Qt
development, gave within a talk at the KDE Developers' Conference
2003 in Nové Hrady -- besides a presentation of the company,
the KDE/FreeQt Foundation and the past and present of the Qt
development toolkit -- an outlook on Qt 4. Qt 4 is expected to be
released in 2004 and promises to deliver increased performance,
both at startup and runtime, more flexibility and productivity and
changes to ease the learning process. Read more excerpts from the
slides shown with the help of Matthias' home-brewn presentation
"Qt 4 mostly tries to preserve source-compatibility with a
little search and replace and a COMPAT compilation switch. More
porting will be required for styles and code that uses the meta
object system directly.
"The increased startup performance will be reached through
reduced number of symbols, less read/write data and fewer static
initiliazers. Fewer mallocs, faster and more optimised tool classes
and reduced memory consumption will improve the runtime performance
enabling Qt 4 to run on embedded devices that are slower and have
less memory than today's desktop computers too..."
