About Ruby Bindings

Through the engagement of only a few guys the project Korundum on Rubyforge was raised, which allowed to use the famous Qt toolkit within the [ruby language]. The bindings were were ported to allow the use of Qt4 and KDE4. After years of development this bindings can be considered as stable for production usage. [1]

Future Plans

After creating a minimum of content the wiki pages will be copied into a book made with LaTeX for people prefering to work with a printed version of this set of tutorials. Afterwards the book should be synchronized with the wiki maybe every half year.
