Qt Since Nokia announced its switch to Windows Phone 7, people have been worried about the future of Qt. Well, it turns out Nokia is still going full steam ahead with Qt, since it has just announced the plans for Qt 5. Some major changes are afoot code and functionality-wise, but the biggest change is that Qt 5 will be developed out in the open from day one (unlike Qt 4). There will be no distinction between a Nokia developer or third party developer.

While open development is good (it was pretty open to begin with, stuff happens in almost real time in public git), I see the switch of graphics system as the most important one.

The focus now switches to making QML as fast as possible (with maximal GPU support), through making Scene Graph the primary drawing method.

This is what Aaron Seigo was waiting for, with eye on plasma speedups:
