In the previous two blogs in this series I showed how solving an apparently simple problem about loading a lot of data into RAM using mmap() also turned out to require a solution that improved CPU use across cores. In this blog, I’ll show how we dealt with the bottleneck problems that ensued, and finally, […]

In my last post, I went through a method of creating a simulated reflection with a simple scene. This time I’d like to take the technique and apply it to something a bit more realistic. I have a model of a car that I’d like to show off in KUESA™, and as we know, KUESA […]
KUESA™ is a Qt module designed to load, render and manipulate glTF 2.0 models in applications using Qt 3D. Kuesa provides a C++ and a QML API which makes it easy to do things like triggering animations contained in the glTF files, finding camera details defined by the designer, etc. It is a great tool so […]
We have released version 2.11.0 of our Qt application monitoring tool GammaRay. GammaRay allows you to observe behavior and data structures of Qt code inside your program live at runtime. GammaRay 2.11 comes with a new inspection tool for Qt’s event handling, providing even more insights into the inner working of your application. Besides looking […]
In Part 1 of this series we solved the problem of using mmap() to load large set of data into RAM all at once. The catch was that it still took too long. In this blog, I describe how we solve this.
Neither KUESA or Qt 3D Studio will give free reflections. If you know about 3D, you know it requires ray tracing software, not OpenGL. So, I wondered if there would be an easy way to create this effect.
We got a call from a bioinformatics group at a European university. The problem appeared simple, how to usemmap() to load a large data set into RAM all at once. OK, no problem I thought...
KDAB has released a new version of KDSoap. This is version 1.8.0 and comes more than one year since the last release (1.7.0). KDSoap is a tool for creating client applications for web services without the need for any further component such as a dedicated web server. KDSoap lets you interact with applications which have […]
This is a follow-up post to Qt on CMake Workshop Summary – Feb ’19 Intro From May 2nd to May 3rd another Qt on CMake workshop was hosted at the KDAB premises in Berlin, where interested stakeholders from both The Qt Company and KDAB gathered together to drive the CMake build system in Qt further. […]
Each month KDAB schedules me to maintain the Qt for Android port. Usually I review the pending patches or fix bugs, but on a quiet month I have time for new functionalities and improvements
