Qt Last week Trolltech announced the release of a technology preview of Qt 4.2, the upcoming version of the cross-platform toolkit scheduled for the 4th quarter of 2006. This release features a new framework for handling canvas items (Graphics View) and improved support for desktop integration, including dbus bindings, Glib eventloop support, switchable button order and a Clearlooks-like style.

I hope it will be fast,

From what I've seen in following the dev blogs through planetkde, the ports to Qt 4.x are showing performance improvements without resource baggage, in some cases with reduced resources. So KDE 4 should be notably faster than 3.5.x.

clean, easy and ergonomic.

That of course is in the eye of the beholder, but the tear-down/re-build approach they're taking combined with the creation of usability teams, plasma etc. should lead to significant improvements across the board here as well.
