Many thanks for your work on the new version of KTouch.

Just some minor issues in the current git/master.

1. The new version is QML-based so scripty does not extract messages. This leads to almost totally untranslated interface. Can the extraction and the loading of the translations be fixed?

2. This version seems does not work (but compiles) in KDE 4.8.5/Qt 4.8.2. Can something like find_package(KDE4 4.9.0 REQUIRED) be added into CMakeLists.txt?

3. Are there any plans to update documentation to the new version?

Thanks in advance for your answers.

Best regards,
