New “Get It” page & “Build It” split out

As we now have some binaries available for Windows & Mac, I renovated the “Get It” page.

You now have there links to the latest versions of our binaries (installer for Windows & application bundle for Mac) beside the link to the distribution packages for Linux/BSD/* as provided by our dear packagers.

For building Kate from sources, we now have the building instructions on a separate “Build It” page.

We will try to update the binary builds in the next days at Randa.

Kate/KWrite Application Bundle Update

I just created new bundles for Kate & KWrite.

By accident they are a bit large, as stuff as web engine is moved to the bundle, but they should work ;=)

How to create them?

mac.txt in kate.git shows how that works.

But you need a macqtdeploy with the patch for QTBUG-48836.

First Day in Randa

Yesterday afternoon I and others arrived in Randa. After some first meetup, started to try out how much work it is to e.g. compile Konsole or KDevelop on my Mac without patching Qt and stuff.

Two review requests pending to get Konsole working at least on some basic level. Lets see what more is needed to get it in some usable state (at least the terminal toolview in Kate now can use the konsole part ;=)
