Trojitá is a small, light, and fast IMAP e-mail client built with Qt. Now, Trojitá is officially a part of the KDE project, and one of the first applications in the whole suite to support Qt5. The announcement comes as a surprise to us, as there is already a well established e-mail client and PIM suite within KDE that takes advantage of KDE as a desktop environment.

This move is increasingly interested after reading this paragraph from jkt’s blog. He claims that Trojitá doesn’t require KDE to run, which we think is great! There are a lot of apps in the KDE SC that are valuable as stand-alone applications, like Krita, but the KDE dependency list is a mile long for non-KDE users. Trojitá eliminates that, but at the same time takes no advantage of KDE’s more prominent backend services, like Nepomuk.
