Qt

Great new things are coming with the latest Qt release. From image based styling of the Qt Quick Controls, new shape types in Qt Quick through to Vulkan enablers as well as additional languages and handwriting recognition in Virtual Keyboard. But wait, there is more. We fully support both OAuth1 & 2, text to speech and we also have a tech preview of the Qt WebGL Streaming Plugin.

The blog post about the release has more information.

I wonder if I will ever see a useful Qt Quick application on my desktop.

Probably not,

but it is heavily used as a first class citizen in the Sailfish OS UI.

...and many commercial embedded systems...

Although, I must say that "Qt's" confusing and fluid licensing costs make a lot of companies think twice before going the Qt route. More and more (L)GPLv3 stuff in newer Qt versions doesn't help either (saying this as a developer working commercially with Qt 4.x/5.x for many years).

Depends if you use KDE or not.

From the last Qt World Summit, there are plenty of them in car infotainment systems, medical devices and mobile applications.

Also the Qt 3D Studio, formerly known as NVIDIA DRIVE Design Studio is a based on QML.

All new Qt APIs are mainly exposed via QML, the pure C++ Widgets already had a better future.
