Hi Qt- and KDE-programmers,

QextMDI library version 2.0.0 Beta1
It's a Qt/KDE-extension widget library for MDI.
QextMDI provides a common interface to MDI GUIs, it encapsulates the
switch between several visualization modes by itself.

1.) It supports these visualization modes: 
    -   Unix-like with all windows as toplevel (like Emacs, gimp)
    -   TabPage mode (like KDEStudio)
    -   MDI like MSWindows standard
    -   faked SDI mode
2.) You can compile QextMDI as KDE2 extension library. Then it bases on
    KParts::DockMainWindow and
3.) You can decorate the MDI views with Win9x, KDE1, default-KDE2 and
    KDE laptop windowmanager style.
4.) Dock/Undock feature, Positioning algorithms
5.) bases on Qt-2.2.x or 2.3.x
