Qt 4.8.0 Released 90

jrepin duly notes the release of Qt 4.8.0, and extracts from the announcement some of the key changes for developers: "Qt Platform Abstraction (QPA) restructures the GUI stack to enable easier porting of Qt to different windowing systems and devices. Threaded OpenGL enables us to render OpenGL from more than one thread concurrently. HTTP requests are now handled in a separate thread by default. The file system stack received some heavy lifting under the hood. The result is better I/O performance."

    With you on that!

    Seriously, I made a rant a while about how there is nothing comparible to visual studio on linux for quick click-n-droll UI dev.. and got properly put in my place! Qt-Creator is seriously a game changer for Linux dev.

    Normally I think it is good style to pronounce it the way the developers intended it to be pronounced. And this is 'cute'. However, in this case they simply were not able to make it commonly enough known. If you are in the right group, more or less only seasoned Qt developers, 'cute' is fine. Anywhere else you might get funny looks. You might even get this look under seasoned Qt developers when you say that you are a 'cute developer'. Unless of course, you are a coding girl with the appropriate looks.
