Tomorrow, KDE release team is going to announce the new KDE 4.7.1. I will post a nice article about my Slackware packages then (they are ready and I am running them on this laptop successfully) but I know that there are some of you who still stick to KDE 3 for a specific reason: Quanta Plus.

The Quanta Plus developers did not port their Web Development program to Qt4… and when KDE 4 was initially released basically that was the end of it.

But to my surprise, these guys have been working on a Qt4 port for a while now, re-creating it as a plugin to kdevelop4.

I thought what the heck, my KDE 4.7 is bleeding edge anyway, so I created package updates for kdevelop and kdevplatform (quanta needed the most recent source code found in their KDE git repositories) and then built a Quanta Plus package for you.

 I never used Quanta Plus so I have no idea if this program is at all functional but it starts, it looks nice and you can leave your remarks  here in the comments section of the blog post after I release it together with the rest of KDE 4.7.1.

Cheers, Eric
