Stephan and others,
Lucas asked a very interesting and serious question - "PySide is Dead".
It is a pity that so few people bothered to try to answer that.
I've been away from PySide, and even Python, for several months. In
fact, for many month. So if I want to take it up again, should I go to
PyQt or PySide? My time is running out. Like running really out.
permanently. So where is PySide at?
Yes, short of knowledgeable people. Who is not?! I just looked up
mailing list archives. To call it an archive is a joke - start at
February 2012, indeed! Where are the earlier emails? I can not believe
that everything prior to Feb 2012 is lost. If it is, then the written
history is lost and it sure means "death by a thousand cuts".
