[EN] KDE moves away from Qt
« on: 2022/04/01, 07:18:55 »
I was eagerly waiting for KDE Plasma and all its software to make the move to Qt6. As rumors have it, this is not going to happen. Given that the Qt Company  has been tightening the screws on free software lately, the KDE team has decided to move to GTK in the background while keeping its typical look up front. This is bad news for Qt fans and for siduction. We now need a maintainer that knows the ins and outs of GTK. Regarding the new name of the product, devs are pondering on KNOME.

Ich habe sehnsüchtig darauf gewartet, dass KDE Plasma und seine gesamte Software auf Qt6 umgestellt werden. Gerüchten zufolge wird dies jedoch nicht geschehen. In Anbetracht der Tatsache, dass die Qt Company in letzter Zeit die Schrauben bei freier Software angezogen hat, hat das KDE-Team beschlossen, im Hintergrund auf GTK umzusteigen, während es sein typisches Aussehen im Vordergrund beibehält. Das ist eine schlechte Nachricht für Qt-Fans und für Siduction. Wir brauchen nun einen Maintainer, der GTK in- und auswendig kennt.
Was den neuen Namen des Produkts betrifft, so denken die Entwickler über KNOME nach.

Also they  introduced an interesting new feature called KNotch and I am very excited about it.

Ich weiß gar nicht, was Du hast, für Asahi auf AS-MBs ist KNotch doch genau richtig.

Hmmm, I wonder how this effects my LXqt running so perfectly on my old EEEpc?

Would someone please post a succinct description of KNOTCH?  I've tried to research it, but most articles I've found are simply YouTube videos telling how great it is, and how to install it from its backport to KDE 5.x.  I'm pretty curious by now.  Thanks!
