Gwenview is partially ported in KDE4:


But it do not include the libkipi interface port...

Doesn't this make the current development build of kipi unusable with host

I have been stricktly using QT 3.3 for this fear. Should I just go ahead and

Mixing Qt3/Qt4 between kipi hosts and libkipi/kipi-plugins will never

Like libkipi and some plugins are already ported, i recommend to start KDE4
port in trunk as well and let KDE3. I have not yet tested the plugins ported
: all compile fine only. To port code can take a while especially about to
learn new API from QT4 and KDE4. Marcel and me we will trying to provide a
first KDE4 port of digiKam during this summer... I recommend you to port
your plugin as weel and wait than a host will be ported to KDE4 to start
test and add new features...

Another question: Is there any other way, I can use QT 3.3 and get the https

I don't know. Why not to take a look in kflickr with use Qt3 ?


Perhaps you can find a solution in implementation...
