It involves plenty of 'eye candy',  however right now we're just doing the 
basic ports, screens are being themed to look like they did before and not 
much else. The real eye candy will come when themers get their hands on it 
and start to implement some of the new stuff. Theming to use the new UI and 
making the code changes at the same time would just slow the whole process 

The new stuff does not use QT widgets etc, whatever benefits come from the new 
UI they are in no way related to the QT4 upgrade. I just want to make that 
clear since a lot of people seem to make that mistake and it would be a shame 
to see Isaac's hard work over three years written off to QT.

Well depends how you define 'worth posting' there are a few demo screenshots 
floating around, nothing special and all put together quick quickly, basic 
images etc. Not all the planned features are implemented just yet and we'd 
ask people not to become impatient.


A couple of people are working on some demos, they might produce better 
screenshots. I'm just making a change to the mythvideo theme which I'll post 
later today, it might be of interest.
