ShapeshifteR is committed to providing the best possible product to its customers. Nokia's
exciting decision to license Qt 4.5 under LGPL has allowed us to take the important
decision to migrate koala's
user interface to this powerful technology.
This move will simultaneously enhance
koala and allow you
to use it across the full range of platforms, including Linux and Solaris.

300 megahertz or higher processor clock speed recommended; 233 MHz minimum required (single or dual
processor system); Intel Pentium/Celeron family, or AMD K6/Athlon/Duron family, or compatible processor
recommended. 128 megabytes (MB) of RAM or higher recommended (64 MB minimum supported; may limit performance
