Has been open source for quite a while now. It is now open governance as well.

Open governance means that a meritocracy, a consensus amongst developers, decides directions for the project, not just Nokia any longer.

It was an open source project with commercial backup, with all good and bad things such deal brings us.

Frankly speaking I'm worried that with more freedom and less resources Qt will enter a permanent redesign cycle. Let's wait and see how it works out - this is one of the biggest challenges for the OS community so far and, who knows, it may become one of its greatest achievements.
