Today we celebrate 20 years since the first release of Qt was uploaded to sunsite.unc.edu and announced, six days later, at comp.os.linux.announce. Over these years, Qt evolved from a two person Norwegian project to a full-fledged, social-technical world-wide organism that underpins free software projects, profitable companies, universities, government-related organizations, and more. It’s been an exciting journey.
From the early days of Trolltech in 1999, through an evolution of licensing (from the original FreeQt, to QPL, to GPL, to LGPL today), corporate cooperation from Nokia and Digia, Open Governance, and leading edge technology refinements, Qt has supported the spirit of free software, thriving communities, and high quality products.
The KDE Community thanks everyone who helps keep Qt rocking; we share our pride in being part of this history. Since 1997, Qt has provided the foundation upon which KDE has developed its workspaces, applications, and development environments. Moreover, Qt has contributed to a fruitful symbiosis where goals, contributions, and discussions blur the boundaries between the Qt and KDE projects. As a result, today KDE is the biggest Qt showcase in the world, and there’s evidence that this successful and long-running partnership will continue.
The Qt/KDE partnership
There are several fundamental aspects of this strong relationship.
Because of all this, we say again with much appreciation: congratulations to all of Qt. Thank you, and keep counting on KDE!

Hello all, you probably rarely hear from me, but I am the hosting provider for this website.Â I wanted to let everyone on here know that our primary server is going to be going down for a complete rebuild tomorrow Monday May 18th, 2015 @ 6pm CDT.Â This downtime is expected to last at least 4 hours.Â However, depending how things get shuffled around, this site may be moving to the alternate server which would reduce the downtime significantly.Â If this site is on the list to be transferred, I will keep you all posted.

A family of Linux malware targeting Linux and BSD servers has been lurking around for five years. Dubbed “Linux/Mumblehard,” the malware contains a backdoor and a spamming daemon, both written in Perl. The components are mainly Perl scripts encrypted and packed inside an executable and linkable format, or ELF, said Eset. In some cases, one ELF executable with a packer nests inside another.
