Qt Since Nokia announced its switch to Windows Phone 7, people have been worried about the future of Qt. Well, it turns out Nokia is still going full steam ahead with Qt, since it has just announced the plans for Qt 5. Some major changes are afoot code and functionality-wise, but the biggest change is that Qt 5 will be developed out in the open from day one (unlike Qt 4). There will be no distinction between a Nokia developer or third party developer.

Meh

GPU acceleration required + more javascript = a big meh, as far as I'm concerned.

There are those who, like Haiku and Enlightenment, choose to optimize their graphic stack enough that it doesn't require a gaming-grade GPU for smoothly drawing gradients and buttons. And there are those who just give up, use a slow web scripting language everywhere in the UI for optimal responsiveness, and turn on the battery hog that a GPU is for trivialities. Sadly, more and more organisms put themselves in the second category...
