My new job means using Windows, and that means a laptop with Windows on it. And since I didn’t have a linux development machine anymore until yesterday, I tried to compile KOffice on Windows. I managed to compile it all right; running didn’t work.

But that’s no problem, because Jaroslaw Staniek had me beaten to getting KWord running (albeit without most plugins) and Adrian Page has made Krita run under Windows. In his own words:

Krita’s been running on windows for a couple of weeks now, but I never got round to reporting the progress.

So now Krita is truly cross-platform: it runs on X11, OS X and Windows. I hope to get my Linux development system up and running today so I can start fixing the layer/node structure tomorrow & the qpainter redisplay code. To start making progress again!
