Qt5-Based KDE KWin Enters Usable State
Phoronix: Qt5-Based KDE KWin Enters Usable State
The next-generation KDE KWin window manager for KDE Frameworks 5 and using the Qt 5.x tool-kit is quickly entering a usable state and can now handle "dogfeeding" by its developers...
I'm pretty excited for it but I'd rather wait until it's officially released. I'm creating a python program with qt and I'm getting segfault issues with qt5 using some pretty straight-forward code. So if a 20-line python script fails to run, I'm not going to trust an entire DE to run reliably.
I'm not home to look at it now, but it's easy to reproduce yourself. If you open up the Qt designer, create a window with a dock widget, save it, and then run pyuic5. The script it creates will segfault, even though the code looks fine. It works fine using pyuic4.

It's probably the python language bindings that are buggy. I imagine that's one of the trickier, and last things, to get done.
