(Apologies for the clickbait in the post title! But I’d really like people who are searching for solutions to read this.) Between Qt 5.14 and Qt 5.15, my colleague, Marc Mutz, and I submitted a series of patches to Qt that added “range constructors” to the Qt containers. This brought Qt containers one step closer […]
Milosz Kosobucki shares the current status of the partial clone functionality in git, providing some details of the problems.

For many developers, QNX is the operating system of choice, when it comes to developing on embedded systems. However, the performance limits are exceeded quickly, especially if you’re working on low-end hardware. As a result, you’ll likely need to perform an investigation to find the bottlenecks that contribute to reaching these limits, in order to […]
Sometimes it’s useful to establish a connection between a signal and a slot that should be activated only once. This is not how signal/slot connections normally behave. Remember that, when a connection is established, it will stay active until: the connection is explicitly disconnected; or the sender object is destroyed; or the receiver object is […]
