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.

ASeigo chips in on subject of KDE 5:

ASeigo - relax ;)

'The Plasma team has no intention, desire or need to start "from scratch" nor engage in a massive redesign of the existing netbook or desktop shells.'

Unlike KDE 3, KDE4 is designed to cope with API breaks such as Qt5.

'This will end up affecting binary compatibility, but source compatibility will remain largely in tact, especially for modules considered 'done' like QWidget based things.'

It will merely require some tweaks here and there, and a re-compile.
