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.

I wonder how badly the KDE project will be hit once Qt starts to mandate the use of OpenGL.


This is a academic question since Qt does not nor will it in the forseeable future do that.

Since you are posting this as a comment to the Qt5 alpha announcement, I guess you might have misintereted the part of QtQuick2 now using an OpenGL/ES bases screen graph.

QtQuick2 is new in Qt5 and can therefore have update requirements, however everything that is in Qt4, e.g. normal widget based GUI, still has its present requirements.

The X11 platform plugin, for example, implements those parts via XCB, i.e. standard X11 capabilities.
