[kde] What happen with korundum?




Hi to all!

I have to write a Qt application for Windows (yugh! don't like but I have no 
option) and GNU/Linux. I don't want to code in C++ and preferred Ruby instead. 

So I searched for bindings and found these: QtRuby, qtbindings and Korundum.

- QtRuby4 was las updated: 2.1.0 - February 17, 2010 mswin32 according to (1)
- qtbindings version is matched with Qt's one and is 4.8.6. Then, is more up-
to-date than QtRuby4.
- Korundum is a special case.

When I found Korundum it said it was a KDE binding for Ruby, a beautiful 
techbase page (2) with lots of explanations. I found it awesome, but seems 
some kind of abandoned: 

- dead links everywhere! 
- official korundum page is 404! (no official page where to see news and 
downloads)
- searching I found it is hosted now at (3), at least the source code. 


Finally, my question is:
- ¿Korundum is alive? 
- ¿Can I use Korundum (and KDE libs ) on Window$ too?
- ¿What happened to the official web page?
- Korundum's QtRuby is not the same as the QtRuby gem, ¿right? (4)
- ¿Do you recommend me to use Korundum's QtRuby (or Korundum itself) for 
writing a Window$ application?

For now, I will mark a warning at the techabse wiki explaining that links are 
dead and the project source code location.

Cheers!
