Qt Yesterday, Trolltech released the final version of Qt 4.4, their graphical toolkit which forms the base for, among a lot of other things, the KDE project. It still features the dual-license model (of course), so proprietary developers can license Qt, while open source developers can get a GPLd version (both GPL 2 as well as 3). Read on for a quick overview of the new features, as well as some findings by Ars Technica.

I think the price used to be less then 4000$ if you just need a single platform, but I could not find the prices at the trolltech website.

Does anyone know if they have removed all pricing information, or have they just moved it someware where neither I nor google could find it?

Yeah it seems the prices have disappeared. For reference, I paid 1160 USD last fall for a single platform desktop license with the small business discount.

Of course from a selfish point of view I'd love it if Nokia lowered prices to push adoption, but then again, even at the current price, Qt is making my (tiny) business possible. I have a full time day job and only do it in my free time, and I firmly believe that I couldn't write the apps I write without Qt given those very limited resources. I've rewritten apps from MFC to Qt before and halved the lines of code. The author of the keyboard launcher Launchy had a similar experience.

That's lower than the $1500 I remember that was published on the Trolltech website before they pulled the price list. It's still quite a bit, but I guess it's worth it for you.

Still, thanks for sharing the info since I've often been curious about what the small business discount was.
