The basic goal of the project is to replace the current KWWidgets-based GUI with Qt. It is anticipated that the following benefits will result:
- Better support for Qt versus KWWidgets. This includes:
- Community support (more developers and users)
- Programming reference and training materials
- Design tools (e.g., Qt Designer)
- Qt has advanced programming constructs (e.g., signals and slots)
- Qt has advanced capabilities (e.g., charting, widgets, SQL interface, etc.)
- Increased (Slicer) application modularity
- Refer to preliminary study done by Sebastien Barre for background technical information.
- Refer to the [Slicer-Qt ARRA pages] for background and official reporting of the project.
- Refer to QtSlicer in Slicer3 for the work done in Slicer3.6
