After a very long period of judging progress, which practically took the whole summer, the folks from the Qt Centre have come to a verdict with regard to their first edition of the Qt Centre Programming Contest 2007. The contest results have finally arrived this last weekend, and besides the understandable delay I sincerely hope this one won't be the last. Congratulations to the whole organization team, judges, sponsors, contestants and of course, last but not least, to the winners :)
After some great and deserved vacation, summer is almost in its way out and one could find some time to bump a few more tricks over the head. BS aside I've managed to get it ready for another pre-release of this hobby project of mine, as an Audio/MIDI multi-track sequencer for JACK and ALSA,
Qtractor 0.0.5.702 (Ninth Hitch Nail) was just settled.
This last Saturday, September the 1st, I was pleased to attend the first National openSUSE Portuguese Meeting (ENOS), in a reply to a special and kind envitation from Carlos Gonçalves and António Cardoso Martins, for whom I'm most thankful in giving me the rare opportunity to show off and make some ad-hoc talk presentation about this Linux Audio/MIDI hobby stuff of mine. The meeting was a success and I wish I could have made it even better if I had done some more thoughful preparation (ie. homework).
Just one week after a no-regrets migration, here comes this second iteration over the Qt4 framework for the JACK Audio Connection Kit "cutie" GUI front-end that everybody loves or at least ought to :)
QjackCtl 0.3.1 (unstable-qt4) is out! [UPDATE: On the next day, QjackCtl 0.3.1a crash-fix was released!]
The main feature on this release, besides for the bug-fixes, is that it's the very first time ever QjackCtl is made available to build and run on all major desktop platforms: X11/Linux, Windows and Mac OS X. Yes you read it right, Windows, and it is thought to behave consistently on all those. One just have to take advantage from the Qt4 open-source edition and license which in fact is the same as QjackCtl's: GPL2.
