OK, While I like the idea of adding 'plug-in' support for the likes of
spice etc. <rant>I'm not prepared for KTechLab to become a purely GUI
front end for other simulation projects. KTechLab was designed from the
start to be an electronics simulation IDE, and as long as I'm heading up
this project, the simulation side of KTechLab will be a priority. I'm
not prepared to let this project become simply a GUI front end for other
Having said that, you are welcome aboard the KTechLab project, Gopala.
I've noticed that you've been involved in another electronics simulation
project and I believe that you can bring valuable experience to the
