Good news, everyone

Good news, everyone. Thanks to Tomek from libgadu and pidgin, I was finally able to build Kadu 1.0-rc2 for Windows. It lacks several plugins (all external ones, spellchecker and otr), but it works almost flawlessly.

You can find packages at my project at OpenSUSE Build Service. It is RPM that can be unpacked with 7zip It contains only one file - Windows installer. I will put installer on Kadu download pages when I resolve problems with spellchecker and otr plugins. Then I will start work on external plugins (probably some small maintenance will be needed).

Kadu 1.0 is very very close to be released. Since last release candidate only a few bugs were found (and only one was serious) and all of them were fixed.

Now I'll focus again on making it work on Windows using OpenSuse Build Service. I won't promise anything, but I'll try to make it happen.

I'm also working on next release on Kadu - 1.1 or just 2 - that will be based on Qt5 instaed of Qt4. I still don't know what features will be introduced - first months of work are always dedicated to internals. I want Kadu 1.1/2 to use at least very simple dependency injection. That is why I'm also starting work on new dependency-injection library dedicated to Qt. Stay tuned ;) It will be amazing ;)
