Hi KDE-science,

just writing to let you know that kst is interested in the kde-science initiative. I stumbled upon this list in the process of looking for places to share developer and/or user information for kst. I guess the next step is adding some info on http://community.kde.org/KDE_Science and waiting for some feedback on this list?

Kst is a very capable 2D plotting tool which is not (yet) very well known, although the kst 1.x series has been around for a few years. It is probably relatively close to SciDAVis, which I won't endeavor to compare it with as I have not yet tried SciDAVis. The project has recently reached a new milestone, with version 2.0.0 released as a Qt-only app for now to ease distribution on some platforms (e.g. Windows). The plans are to benefit from KDE goodies on platforms where KDE is installed, by reintroducing some optional dependencies in a forthcoming minor version. 

In the meantime after the release of the first 2.x version we want to launch some promotion work, as the tool's mindshare does not do justice to its quality. We've discussed some points on the kst mailing list already, but there have been only very few concrete actions taken until now. So, stay tuned and let us know what the plans are here, and whether/how we could get some help for that promotion work (or why not, coding!).
