KDSoap 2.0.0 Released

KDSoap 2.0.0 was just released!

What is KDSoap?

KDSoap is a tool for creating client applications for web services, without the need for any further component such as a dedicated web server. This tool makes it possible to interact with applications which have APIs that can be exported as SOAP objects. The web service then provides a machine-accessible interface to its functionality via HTTP.

KDSoap also supports writing SOAP servers easily, using Qt code.

Other fixes and improvements that come with v2.0.0 include an uninstall target in the buildsystem, generation+installation of the API manual in qch format for Qt assistant, and the addition of options to the KDSoapClient class specifying the SOAP action sending method.
