Qt 4 Applications
Version 0.8.0 of cb2Bib, an application for extracting bibliographic references from email alerts, journal web pages and PDFs and formatting them in BibTeX standard, has been released. Changes:
- Browser display mode enhancing file navigation and reference presentation
- Advanced reference search capabilities
- Fixes to automatic recognition and dialog functionality
Version 1.8.1 of Recoll, a "personal full text search tool" based on the Xapian back-end, has been released. Changes include "a small query language with some field-based searches (author, title, etc.), and wildcard handling: the standard *, ?, [ ]", as well as minor UI improvements and bug-fixes. Screenshots here, downloads (source, various Linux distro binaries) here. Requires Qt 3.3 or Qt 4.
A first beta of version 0.5.0 of QTM, a desktop blogging client for Movable Type and similar blogging systems written by the author of this blog, has been released. Changes:
- New feature: Quickpost templates, enabling the blogger to set up custom blog entry templates into which the URL and title of the article being blogged can be automatically pasted when blogging. This helps when posting formulaic blog entries such as most of those on this blog. Only available through the system-tray icon in this version, which means it requires Qt 4.2.
- New feature: ability to specify trackback pings to be sent at the time of publishing on blogging engines which support it (like Movable Type).
- Bug fix: the app used to crash when closing the preferences window when the system tray icon was in use, due to a dangling pointer.
- Bug fix: the app would not close when Quit was selected from the STI on the Mac.
- Switch to CMake build system
- Add, commit, delete and revert dialogs now modeless (i.e. do not block other operations)
- Ability to copy, move and rename files and make new directories
- Store encrypted passwords with CryptAPI (Win2K+ only, not Unix)
For full changelog, see the release notes. Screenshots here, downloads (source, Windows installer) from the release notes page. Requires Qt 4 (what minor version is not stated, but the Windows installer uses v4.2.2).
Version 0.7.3 of cb2Bib, "a tool for rapidly extracting unformatted biblographic references from email alerts, journal Web pages, and PDF files", has been released. This version "fixes several issues related to DOI and URL encoding, HTML character encoding in PubMed import, and dynamic bookmarks generation" (full changelog here). Screenshots here, downloads (source, Windows, Mac and Fedora Core RPM binaries) here with requirements list here. Requires Qt 4.2.
Version 1.1 of kmando, an application enabling interaction between webcams and projectors developed at Sheffield Hallam University (in England), has been released.

Version 1.0.0 of H-FTP, an FTP client which uses Qt 4, has been released. (Not to be confused with this HFTP, it seems.) One bug has been fixed since the last version, namely "uploading files by drag and dropping files into listView". Screenshots and source code download from KDE Apps page.
