2012.03.21: TDE spring fundraiser

It's time for our TDE spring fundraiser!

The TDE project relies on your financial support to continue development of this reliable and easy-to-use desktop environment. As my way of saying thank you I have developed a new theme engine for Qt4 that allows you to use your TDE styles and file dialogs in new Qt4 applications, as well as interface methods required to easily convert common Qt4 objects to TQt3 objects and vice versa.

If we can raise the $2,000 required to keep the TDE project running for the rest of the year by April 30, 2012, I will release the source code for this new theme engine under the GPL and also integrate it into the next TDE release. Once this engine and the conversion methods are part of TDE, the foundation will have been laid for work to begin on a Webkit-based replacement for the aging TDEHTML engine.

Donations can be securely made to the project via our Donate page. I will also update that page from time to time with progress made towards the $2,000 goal.

Library requirements: TQt3, Qt4, and TDE core
Lines of C++ source code: 4207 (theme engine and Qt4 object translator)
License: GPL
Functional quality: ALPHA

Screenshots of the theme engine in action are available below, showing common TDE styles in use with Qt4 applications. If you want to see this engine released and think the TDE project is worth a few dollars, please donate to help keep the TDE project going!
