Porting Qt 5 on Haiku
Giova84 last edited by
I'm writing here as Haiku's user and also as happy user of Qt apps, on various platforms.
Me, like a lot of other users, we are also using Qt apps on Haiku - OS ( "Haiku - OS":http://www.haiku-os.org/ )
Currently, on Haiku, we have the Qt 4.8.5 available, and this port was originally started by two developers ( "Qt for Haiku on Gitorious":http://gitorious.org/+qt-haiku )
The fact is that, despite the fact that we can properly execute also interesting apps (eg Scribus, Qbittorent and Qupzilla), at the moment Qt on Haiku is not complete (eg miss phonon) and is buggy here and there (especially in the QtWebKit part).
I'm writing here, since to me and some other Haiku users, we'd like to find a programmer/expert developer able to fully port the latest version of Qt on Haiku.
With "fully port" we mean to port the Qt 5.x in a perfect way: complete of any components (eg shared memory, phonon and with the latest revision of QtWebKit) and bug free.. A first class port.
We're also disposed to start a fund raising to pay a developer.
If someone is interested to do an attempt, or to give some help, can also refer to this page:

Thank you for the attention.
You might want to try asking on the development mailing list, you'll find Qt's maintainers/developer there (this forum is more user oriented)
