but that website now appears to be down. Does anybody know (a) what has become of the QTikZ project, and (b) whether there is an alternative place to obtain a copy of QTikZ for Windows?

    @Kpym Unfortunately, TikzEdt is no more maintained as well.

The source code lives on http://github.com/fhackenberger/ktikz (last update in September 2015), and an archived copy of the website from September 2015 can be found at https://web.archive.org/web/20150921123912/http://www.hackenberger.at/blog/ktikz-editor-for-the-tikz-language/
