The image issue turns out to be a Qt bug. I've got a workaround in place, but it's rather clunky and slows things down a bit...

When running the beta on your own cards, some bugs become immediately obviously, like the fact that pictures don't work...

After some wrestling, there should now be a decent Windows installer again!

Lots of trouble with pyinstaller, I'm going to try pyqtdeploy instead...

All features in the PyQt5 client seem to be working now. Next step is dogfooding this for my own reviews, but for that I need to convert the Android client too, so that's next on my todo list.

Roadblock time: in PyQt4, I was using a hidden html widget to do all sorts of fancy stuff, like automatic space allocation for Q and A, html rendering in the card browser, etc...

Unfortunately, it seems PyQt5 does not support this (yet). I've been looking into ways around this for the past few days, but without luck.

It seems this is the price we pay for moving from an unsupported toolkit to a supported one, so that we can run e.g. without problems on HD displays...

Lots of progress with the PyQt5 port these last days: we're now in a situation where the program starts and you can do basic stuff like revisions.

Still lots of work ahead, though, but I'm disappearing from the net for a few days for a family holiday :-)

Fixing some stuff with the headless sync server, so that I can start using the PyQt5 version for my own reviews...

For pyqtdeploy it turns out you have to recompile all your libraries. That way madness lies... So, back to pyinstaller, trying to work around its bugs.

Android work stalled for now, while I'm waiting for the middleware author to provide some missing libraries.

So, I've been looking at modernising our installer infrastructure: rather than using 2 solutions (py2exe on Win, py2app on Mac), I plan to switch to single solution (pyinstaller).

Progress on the PyQt5 UI is going well: I've roughly checked about 80% of the functionality I think.

Nice milestone: the testsuite now runs cleanly under Python 3 (apart from the translation stuff, which is not my immediate priority).

Still some work on the GUI part, though, for which there is no testsuite...
