For the forthcoming midterm evaluation of Gsoc2011, I made a lot of progress with the code and now I’m about to publish the alpha release. Before the alpha release is released, I have decided to post a blog to inform everyone about the progress of project 6 (Static Analysis of Android Malware).
Our tool is written by PyQt, which is a great interface to Qt for Python. It is very easy to design the UI by Qt Designer. Qt contains lots of libraries to support pretty UI framework. What’s more, Qt supports cross platform applications.
