Kludget Engine version 1.0 has arrived

After a little more than a year of kludging, the engine has reached the stable version release – 1.0.
It is now running on top of Qt 4.7 framework. With several internals of the engine updated, it is a lot more stable now. And the performance has greatly improved.

I’m contemplating of changing the direction of the Kludget Engine to be more of a comprehensive desktop and shell enhancement instead of just a Widget/Gadget engine. Or maybe just fork a new project out of it. But for now, enjoy v1.0.0

Download the MacOSX stock Widgets

A lot of people have emailed me regarding where to find these. I probably couldn’t post these widgets here so I get a notice from Apple, I will take down the page. So download now :)
