after less than a month I'm happy to release qt-at-spi 0.3.0.
This project keeps evolving and as you'd expect in an accessibility plugin
that is completely hidden from the user, development is just about bugfixing
and getting it in shape to play nice with other existing infrastructure.
What made me happy this time around, and what triggered the short cycle since
the last release is that I started getting more and more feedback from Orca
Thanks to Joanie and Mike and others I could finally nail down some old issues
in the tree view handling.
As always this goes together with some fixes in Qt itself, so you might want
to grab the 4.8 branch of Qt that will soon be 4.8.2 if you want to try the
latest and greatest.
The qt-at-spi bridge enables accessibility via screen readers for Qt
applications on Linux.
Changes since 0.2:
* Send keyboard events only when someone is listening
* Fix caching of tree and table items (Orca will no longer read outdated data)
* Fix at least one crash and one off-by-one error when reading tree items
* The usual internal cleanup and improvments that won't be noticable
Dependencies: Qt 4.8.0 and newer.
What is that thing? A bridge that lets Qt applications interface with the AT-
SPI accessibility framework that GNOME provides. For users that mostly means
that the Orca screenreader should work nicely with Qt applications.
You need a distribution that uses AT-SPI 2 (check your packages, any recent
distro should do, this is part of standard GNOME).
