Zanshin 0.4.0 is out: port to Qt5 done

We are happy and proud to announce the immediate availability of Zanshin 0.4.0.

This release marks the end of our port to Qt5 and KDE Frameworks 5. It also means we're now compatible with the newest Akonadi and KDEPIM releases. It doesn't bring any new feature but the port itself is big news.

Despite the lack of features, we wanted to make this version as solid as possible, that's why we spent quite some time running quality tools on the code base to find potential issues. It results in quite a few fixes ranging from potential memory leaks, to pure optimizations.

We also wanted a slightly improved look. Nothing radical or fancy, but we spent time improving the layouts to have a better visual alignment all around and less unwanted margins. It looks even more tidy now!

Of course all the features you grew accustomed to are still here and it's time to rediscover them on this new technical backend.

As usual, you can grab 0.4.0 while it is fresh! You can download the sources obviously, which is the best way to have something up to date but a bit more involving. Packages are available for openSUSE Tumbleweed from the home:ervin repository, give it a bit of time for other distributions to catch up.

Now it's time for us to relax a bit and start preparing our next release, this time with new features and probably further visual changes.
