Windows Binary

Jason Donenfeld has built a nice windows installer of the current version of Arora with Qt 4.4.0 so all the Windows users to give Arora a whirl without having to compile anything.

Lots of little improvements have been going in and we got a new dialog to reset Arora today. If you noticed a memory leak before, upgrading should fix that for you.

This evening I picked up the domain It just points to for now, but at least I own it so we can use it in the future if we want v.s. some spammer who will come along eventually.

YouTube and more developers

Although not new news I figured you all would enjoy seeing youtube working in Arora with webkit trunk and what you can look forward to in Qt 4.5. (disclaimer: webkit trunk is a bit broken sometimes and really for development, not users) This screenshot was taken in KDE4, notice the Oxygen style bugs, most notably with the scrollbars, hopefully those guys will fix that soon.

After returning from my vacation and with the release of Qt 4.4 there has been a lot of interest in helping out with Arora. A number of people have joined the irc room and contributed patches too. There are two new wiki pages, the first one is a getting started page to help people build Arora that are curious and the second is a contributing page with one way you can contribute patches to Arora. Others have begun reporting bugs and feature requests. Very exciting!

New Application Icon

Thanks to Jens Bache Arora has a new icon. It has been pushed into the repository and put up on the website. Now we need a name for our sleeping mascot.
