0001 ============= 0002 telepathy-qt 0003 ============= 0004 0005 This is a library for Qt-based Telepathy clients. 0006 0007 Telepathy is a D-Bus framework for unifying real time communication, 0008 including instant messaging, voice calls and video calls. It abstracts 0009 differences between protocols to provide a unified interface for 0010 applications. See the Telepathy website for more information: 0011 0012 http://telepathy.freedesktop.org/ 0013 0014 Telepathy specification 0015 ======================= 0016 0017 The copy of the Telepathy specification in the spec/ directory indicates 0018 the specification that this library claims to implement. The HTML documentation for the latest version of the specification can be viewed at: 0019 0020 http://telepathy.freedesktop.org/spec/ 0021 0022 Requirements 0023 ============ 0024 0025 Building telepathy-qt requires: 0026 Qt, QtDBus, QtNetwork and QtXml (QtGui and QtWidgets are required for some examples) <http://www.qt-project.org/> 0027 0028 GNU make <http://www.gnu.org/software/make/> 0029 pkg-config <http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/pkg-config/> 0030 libxslt, xsltproc <http://xmlsoft.org/XSLT/> 0031 Python <http://www.python.org/> 0032 0033 For the full set of regression tests to run, you'll also need: 0034 telepathy-glib <http://telepathy.freedesktop.org/releases/telepathy-glib/> 0035 0036 For building the Farsight convenience library, you'll need: 0037 telepathy-glib <http://telepathy.freedesktop.org/releases/telepathy-glib/> 0038 telepathy-farsight <http://telepathy.freedesktop.org/releases/telepathy-farsight/> 0039 GStreamer <http://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/> 0040 0041 and to build the Farstream convenience library, you'll need: 0042 telepathy-glib <http://telepathy.freedesktop.org/releases/telepathy-glib/> 0043 telepathy-farstream <http://telepathy.freedesktop.org/releases/telepathy-farstream/> 0044 farstream <http://freedesktop.org/software/farstream/releases/> 0045 GStreamer <http://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/> 0046 0047 See CMakeLists.txt for full details, including versions required. 0048 Of the packages listed above, only Qt libraries are required at runtime. 0049 0050 Building also requires the cmake build system. 0051 0052 Qt 5 alpha release contains some build issues that should be addressed in order to build 0053 telepathy-qt against it: 0054 0055 - When running 'configure' in Qt 5 alpha, the pkg-config files are properly generated, but when 0056 'make' is executed, these files are replaced with empty ones. So, to build telepathy-qt against 0057 it one must either backup the pkg-config files generated during the 'configure' phase before 0058 running 'make' and replace them afterwards, or re-run 'configure' with the same parameters 0059 after building it. 0060 0061 - If Qt 5 alpha is built with -reduce-relocations enabled, one must add the keyword 0062 "reduce_relocations" to qtbase/lib/pkgconfig/QtCore.pc in the qt_config section, so that 0063 telepathy-qt knows when to use -fPIC/PIE at linking stage accordingly. 0064 0065 Both issues were reported and should be fixed when beta is out. 0066 0067 Bugs, feature requests and to-do list 0068 ===================================== 0069 0070 Report all bugs, feature requests and "to-do" items here: 0071 <https://bugs.freedesktop.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=Telepathy&component=tp-qt> 0072 0073 Running "make check" will produce FIXME.out, which lists all the mentions of 0074 FIXME, TODO or XXX in the source code. Ideally, all of these should be in 0075 Bugzilla, but sometimes they're not. 0076 0077 API stability policy 0078 ==================== 0079 0080 We use an "odd/even" versioning scheme where the minor version (the y in 0081 x.y.z) determines stability - stable branches have y even, development 0082 branches have y odd. 0083 0084 In a stable (even) branch, we will not make incompatible API or ABI changes 0085 between one release tarball and the next. 0086 0087 In a development (odd) branch, if we make incompatible ABI changes 0088 between one release tarball and the next, we will change the SONAME of the 0089 library; we will attempt to avoid incompatible API or ABI changes. 0090 0091 Unreleased builds straight from git identify themselves as version 0092 "x.y.z.1". We DO NOT make any API guarantees about unreleased builds: 0093 any binary relying on new functionality from an unreleased build is not 0094 guaranteed to work with any subsequent release or unreleased build, and on 0095 platforms with versioned symbols (mainly Linux) it definitely won't work with 0096 subsequent releases (you'll have to at least relink the binary). 0097 We do not increment SONAMEs on the basis of unreleased changes. 0098 0099 Unreleased builds are compiled with -Werror, so they might stop working 0100 if your gcc version issues more warnings than ours. If this is a problem 0101 for you, use a release tarball. 0102 0103 Contact info 0104 ============ 0105 0106 This library is maintained by the Telepathy project: 0107 <http://telepathy.freedesktop.org/> 0108 <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> 0109 <irc://irc.freenode.net/telepathy> 0110 0111 Telepathy development is supported by Collabora Ltd. 0112 <http://www.collabora.co.uk/>. 0113 0114 Hacking 0115 ======= 0116 0117 See HACKING for version control, coding style and patch submission information.
