+ - Digia to acquire Qt from Nokia 1

Submitted by

MrvFD writes "Ever since the most recent layoffs were announced by Nokia last month and the end of Qt related programs at Nokia was rumored, the fate of Qt has been in the air despite it nowadays having a working open governance model. Fear no longer, Qt brand, since Digia has now announced acquiring of Qt organization from Nokia. While relatively unknown company to the masses, it has already been selling the non-free (non-LGPL) licenses of Qt for 1.5 years. Hopefully this'll mean a bright future for Qt in co-operation with other Qt wielding companies like Google, RIM, Canonical, Intel, Skyp... Microsoft, Jolla and the thousands of Qt open source and commercial license users. Digia now plans to quickly enable Qt on Android, iOS and Windows 8 platforms, where work has already been underway for some time."

  • Yet another result of Elop's mismanagement of a once great organization. Qt would have been the platform that powered the next generation smartphones to low budget featurephones. Too bad Qt wasn't given a chance due to this guy's ties with his former employer.

    I just wished instead the old Trolltech would rise again.
