froglogic Releases Tq 1.1 with Windows Support

Hamburg, Germany – 2004-04-13 froglogic today announced the availability of Tq 1.1. Tq is a library which assists in migrating Tcl/Tk applications to the Qt toolkit and allows mixing Tk and Qt in a single application by mixing event loops.

The major new feature of Tq 1.1 is added support for the Windows platform. Tq 1.0 was only available for Unix/X11. Since Tk, just like Qt, is a cross-platform GUI toolkit, demand to port it to Windows arose. froglogic is happy to be able to add Windows to the list of supported platforms by Tq.

“We have been very impressed by froglogic’s efficiency and incredible responsiveness during our initial trials of Tq and the Windows port of Tq. We look forward to using Tq to integrate our Tcl-based scripting language into Qt-based applications.” said John Chawner, President of Pointwise, Inc.

Tq customers and evaluators can now find Tq 1.1 packages in their download area. For more information about Tq, visit https://www.froglogic.com/tq. If you are interested in evaluating Tq, please contact us at tq@froglogic.com.

About froglogic
froglogic GmbH is a software company offering Qt consultancy services and Qt-based development tools. froglogic was founded by two former Trolltech senior engineers, Reginald Stadlbauer and Harri Porten, who now use their experience and skills to serve the Qt 3rd party market. froglogic is based in Hamburg, Germany. More about froglogic at www.froglogic.com.

Harri Porten is of German and Finnish descent and grew up in Germany and Thailand. After high school he studied at the Technical University of Hamburg-Harburg in Germany, and at the University of Waterloo in Canada; he graduated with a diploma in Mechanical Engineering. Harri started programming on an Apple II, and soon turned his hobby into a source of income, providing maintenance and consultancy services to local businesses. After discovering Linux, Harri joined the "KDE" project, where he eventually implemented a JavaScript interpreter – this interpreter was adopted for use in KDE's web browser "Konqueror", and is now also used by Apple in its Safari browser, and served as the starting point for WebKit's JavaScript interpreter. Harri began working as a software engineer at Trolltech AS in Oslo in the summer of 2000. During the next three years he oversaw the portability of the Qt GUI toolkit to a wide variety of different compilers and operating systems, including HP-UX and AIX. In addition, he implemented Qt's original SVG support, and was involved in Trolltech's quality assurance process. Harri was also a member of the Qt Script for Applications (QSA) team. Harri co-founded froglogic in 2003.
