Hi Qt- and KDE-programmers,

================================================================
QextMDI library version 1.0 (Beta2)
================================================================
It's a Qt-extension widget set that provides full functionality and
behaviour for an MDI application (except the document stuff that has
nothing to do in a widget collection). 
Your application is additionally configurable in several modes (also at
runtime): 
 -   MDI like MSWindows standard (includes stacked SDI)
 -   Unix-like with all windows as toplevel (like Emacs, gimp)
 -   somewhere between these 2 modes

Changes from 1.0beta1 to 1.0beta2
=================================
- method interface for adding MDI views changed
- "Window" menu improved: submenu for Dock/Undock and one for window
manager operations. 
- class QextMdiChildArea is protected now, there's a througput of some
functionality
  from the mainframe to that one.
- the taskbar items can have different names than view titles.  
- class interfaces optimized
- The QextMdiChildView-list of the mainframe can be accessed by a
special iterator now.
- TRUE and FALSE is used instead of true and false (compatibility with
some compilers)
- toplevel mode is better supported now
- a lot of bugfixes, especially resizing and moving of MDI views
- a set of useful additional methods
- Info: QextMDI works with Qt-2.1 as well
- Info: KDevelop1.1 supports QextMDI by ApplicationWizard


Keep the idea of 
taking the best of both worlds!
