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'm sorry to read they're phasing out C++ in favour of JavaScript.


Then you will be happy to read that you've misinterpreted the announcement's text ;)

Qt is still written in C++ and C++ is the main application development language.

Additional to that support for JavaScript in the context of QML base UI has been improved to a new level.

So if you are using QML for the UI of your application (which will still mainly be written in C++) you have now more and better integration between JavaScript and C++.

If you are not using QML nor QtScript for in-application scripting, then you don't have to care about JavaScript at all.
