Qt As some had already anticipated when Nokia acquired Trolltech, the next version of the Maemo platform will have its application framework based on Qt instead of Gtk+. This news was announced at the Gran Canaria Desktop Summit. While the switch to Qt may seem a major defeat for the GNOME community, this isn't exactly true, as many of the underlying technologies will still be GNOME-centric.

This is not all that unexpected.

Something like this was coming. Gtk has had cross platform issues not that this was the reason for the Nokia shift. Does Gtk work on OS -X yet?

Notably, VLC changed away from Gtk. I heard that Wireshark developers were also thinking of this for the GUI frontend.

I don't think VLC ever had a Gtk interface. Before they moved to Qt they used wxWidgets.

Yes. But wxWidget used the wxGtk backend which relied on Gtk - atleast on Linux/BSD.
