Hello Frederik,

I'm trying to keep KVocTrain alive. Porting to KDE 4 progresses slowly but 

I would encourage against working on the 3.5.x version. The KDE 4 version so 
far will not be very different from the user's point of view, but internally 
the changes are/will be substantial. For the future it would be much more 
worthwhile to learn and work on the KDE 4 version in trunk.

I agree with you that the current search function is very awkward. It would be 
great if you are willing to design something better.
