Asymmetrical Tabs

As part of my janitor work, some time ago I rewrote the tab bar in KOffice - used among others in KSpread to select the active worksheet. To get more familiar with Qt 4, I decided to port it to Qt 4 which turned out to be easier than I thought:

Also I changed the look so that each tab becomes asymmetric, i.e. only one of the sides is angled, just like tabs in Microsoft Office 12.

Expect this to appear in (still in the) future KDE4-based KOffice. Oh yes, the new setRenderHint(QPainter::Antialiasing) is of course abused here :-)

Anyway to reload that picture?

Samuel: just reload manually, this blogspot server is always busy and sometimes you don't get the access.

That looks much nicer that KSpread's current tab bar :)

I hope the rest of the UI will gain as much from the port to Qt 4.

That did the trick, thanks.
