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.

Member since:

It's a much neater concept than e.g. with C# / Silverlight, where you are forced to write almost everything in C#

I should point out on the ui level silverlight is a pretty similar concept to QtQuick but uses XAML instead of javascript. From what I've seen of qtquick binding to the ui is not as intuitive as in silverlight.

I don't like javascript that much (probably due to lack of familiarity) but its syntax is far cleaner than XML (it gets worse when using a tool like expression blend as it literally vomits out XML tags).

Everything else is very true, but that has been the tradeoff with managed languages since forever...
