It's on my TODO, but I fear, that currently it has a lower priority as e.g.
get the kjsembed-integration 99.5% done since for kdelibs we are moving day
by day to the deadline where things got phrozen. So, top prio is currently to
get it in a as much "binary compatible ready" state as possible before the
The reason why I wrote n weeks/months for the kjs/kjsembed integration is,
that it's still, as everything of kdelibs, a moving target and therefore it's
not that easy to provide any dates where things are done that are not direct
related to the kdelibs-freez date which is not known yet too.
I like what Jaroslaw sayed here about a "KDE-light" wrapper to prevent
#ifdef's in the code itself. So, if it will be really the case, that there
stays no time to work on a Qt-only mode next ~6 months, then (as Carsten
suggested on irc :) there stays still the possiblity to get such a mode
outside of kdelibs done and keep Kross in a phrozen kdelibs bc that way +
offer a small layer around used KDE-dependencies.
p.s. sorry, for the case my replies don't integrate into a "Treeview" mode. I
am not subscribed to the mailinglists but read+reply through gmane-news cause
of my slow internet-connection and the missing motivation to download
thausend of mails each day ;)
