Yes, given the (Qt) Windows client was EOLed, it left Ring-KDE as the only Qt client (and is not official). So all the Qt APIs and Qt design patterns inside the original LibRingClient made a lot less sense for the remaining non Qt clients.

Trying to keep pushing things like QML bindings deep into GNU Ring is not going to work politically. A fork was a better alternative for everyone.

Oh, an please note I will change the file format to be CardDAV/CalDAV/WebDAV compliant before releasing 3.0. This was a last minute decision and delayed everything a lot. This will allow Ring-KDE on multiple devices to cross-synchronize each other without a centralized server.

doskoi: Yes you’re right (as you can see, this package was already using a different version of libringclient). Feel free to adopt this package in addition to the -git version, I haven’t been maintaining it since a long time.

ring-kde seems to use libringqt instead of libringclient from now on.

This package might need to be updated/rebuilt against libringclient in [community-testing]. I plan to move ring out of community-testing in a few days.

The compilation fails:

3.0.0-alpha1 is out

Please report *all* bugs to . I would really, really appreciate in depth testing before 3.0.0.

If you use Ring-KDE as a phone, use `--phone` on the command line to get the old GUI.

Another Arch user reported instabilities ( from an unknown source. I would also like to know if it's generalized or specific to him/her. I can't reproduce the issue on my system or my other test systems.

OK, QtQuickControls wasn’t a dependency before, and it was not detected as a runtime deps by Arch packaging tools. I’ll add it and keep you updated on freenode (#ring).

(I am on IRC, #ring, #kde-devel or #archlinux @freenode)

It doesn't find qt5-quickcontrols2, this is probably what prevented the wizard from starting. This is a packaging problem and none of the changes I did in the last 2 months could have effected this.

Hum… It doesn’t even start from the terminal now, here is the output:
History doesn't exist or is not readable

On previous attempts, there was even less output on the terminal.
