Qt "The Qt development toolkit is undergoing a major overhaul. The developers behind the project announced the availability of the Qt 5 alpha release this week. It's a key milestone on the path to the official launch of Qt 5, expected to occur later this year." The kind of stuff to read Ars for.

What I want to see

The GTK+ side of Linux GUIs has its trouble, but it's doing something massively right: it's fixing the development toolchain with the Vala and Genie languages, and that reverses the advantage that Qt enjoyed with C++ and MOC. Qt is good, but I wonder if it can change enough to continue being great.

The elementaryOS project is showing what can be done with Vala and Genie, and going to Javascript doesn't seem to me like something that will yield the best results in the long run. Simplicity breeds simplicity.
