Thanks for all feedback since our last release. Here is beta2. The main change is a KDE user interface for those that does not have pygtk. And we have some bug fixes too. Download it here, and remember to run the installer executable.
- New KDE user interface (uses Kommander)
- Many translations updated
- Corrected –help text
- PyGTK interface should not froze anymore
- Few bug fixes
- IE7 update: now we copy ieframe.dll too (did this fix internet options dialog?)
Some people reported problems with python+pygtk. I though that with a PyGTK and a KDE version we would cover 99% of graphical linux environments (those that prefer command-line can use ./ies4linux). But it seems that I was wrong 🙂 So, I ask you: how can I make an user interface on linux today (with some script language) that works on most distros?
About the KDE GUI: I tried pyqt before doing it with Kommander. But I think pyqt is very difficult to learn, there is very few tutorials available and the API is not simple. Kommander was very very simple to learn and use, but maybe we still have some issues (I can’t make logo appears, layout is not fluid). If anyone knows how we can improve this Kommander version (or if anyone can write a PyQT version), please leave a comment here.
