One of my many side projects is a port of Keyring to Qt 5. Keyring is a password manager: it stores all of your passwords in an encrypted database with one master password. This is very handy when you need to look up the login details for a site or forum you joined years ago or passwords that you hardly ever need like your router password or bank account "memorable information".
Originally, Keyring was writted for Qt/embedded 2.3. A couple of years ago I did an update to make some minor improvements plus a quick and dirty port to Qt 3. A lot has changed in Qt since then; for example there is now full support for Windows, introduction of model-view programming, the format of the UI Designer files changed as did a large percentage of the API. The API changes that most affected this port were to QSettings, QLayout, QListView and QString. Unfortunately, tools that help automate the porting to newer versions of Qt such as qt3to4 only exist in legacy packages and would only take the port to the next stage, that of needing the Qt header includes updated and other work. Future work now focuses on making the code more maintainable and improving the UX.Keyring Project Page »

Unicode is much more widespread since the last version and it is much more likely that there will be text files with multiple languages. This version now allows letters and characters from other languages to be mixed with Thai.
The discrimination of TIS-620 from general 8 bit ASCII is also improved despite not encoding any Thai language in thaiconv: When the upper half of 8 bit ASCII is used for Latin accented characters it is much less likely to have consecutive letters in this range. For Thai using TIS-620, letters are more likely to be consecutive.View details »
