Kexi in March+April

No, we do not skip March, for Kexi it was just too silent month to blog about it alone ;) Here we go (based on identi.ca notes):

Deploying SQLite

"There's nothing easier" -- you say -- about packaging and deploying SQLite. "Just take the software with default settings and package as a shared lib plus SQLite shell".

It's not that simple.

The SQLite project is developed at impressive speed assuming complexity of the software. It's already part of many operating systems like OS X and Symbian. Linuxes use it somewhat at system level. Browsers use SQLite for storage via HTML 5, earlier via Google Gears.

Last month in Kexi

With 2010 we've started to employ identica (then connected to Twitter and Facebook) as an channel for our live changelog at the {power}user level. Here's the dump for the past ~30 days (oh I should have used an XSLT).

Fixes, features

Many small fixes are a building block of the Kexi porting effort - the goal is joining the KOffice 2.2. Many of the fixes and refactoring is related to forms. Much more left and we're scheduling works on crazy features even up to Kexi 2.6 already.

Towards Kexi Mobile

As Maemo Summit 2009 starts in a few hours. While I am not there, for me one of the most interesting parts is the Handheld Glom: Easy database applications presentation. Glom is a desktop database developed by GNOME friends using gtkmm (C++). Originally bound directly to PostgreSQL, recently (early 2009) has gained SQLite file database support (default engine in Kexi since 2004).

Forgotten File Formats

While explaining the story behind his great ppttoxml tool, Jos also mentioned

Since about a year, Microsoft has, after significant political pressure, put documentation for their file formats on-line.

Kexi Quickies

A post on the KDE forum motivated me to write some info about what's new with Kexi 2.0. For sanity I groupped a set of quickies as an 2.0 Alpha 12 changelog. For uninformed, most applications within KOffice will meet the stable 2.0 release (already passed a promising RC1 stage), while Kexi and Kivio neds more time for development.

New year at a new desk

New year means some snow and cold noses here in Warsaw, and a new job to me, this time in the mobile industry, what has rather diversified my day, and that's good. Happy 2009 to you, to your friends and family.

Native Qt3-only version of KexiDB, and more

I've been enjoying the time (bikes!), meetings (absolute record # of attendees) and technology (n810!) at Akademy since 9th August. And a young student from Poland, Michał Bartecki has been invited to come, what adds one to the number of the gfx individials around and made the KDE ping-pong team stronger. Kudos for the Team for such an unique event, for their time, sweat and tears :)
