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

Manny Pacquiao crushes Miguel Cotto


LAS VEGAS (AP)—Manny Pacquiao put on yet another dominating performance Saturday night, knocking down Miguel Cotto twice and turning his face into a bloody mess before finally stopping him 55 seconds into the 12th round.

Pacquiao used his blazing speed and power from both hands to win his seventh title in seven weight classes and cement his stature as the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world. Cotto took such a beating that his face was a river of red from the fury of Pacquiao’s punches.

Pacquiao dropped Cotto with a right hand early in the third round, but he wasn’t badly hurt and came back to finish the round strong. But after Pacquiao put Cotto on the canvas with a big left hand as Cotto was advancing forward late in the fourth round, Cotto was never the same again.

Cotto fought gamely but in the later rounds he was just trying to survive as blood flowed down his face and Pacquiao kept coming after him relentlessly.
