Also, lots of talk about Wayland and OpenGL (ES) 2.0.

Phoronix: Just Announced: Qt 5 To Be Released Next Year
Just announced during the Ubuntu Developer Summit in Budapest is word that Qt 5 is in development and will be released in the next calendar year...
The article says that Qt5 will be modularized, but it already is. Does it mean it will be more modularized?
Qt4 already has components like QtCore, QtGUI, QtXML, QtNetwork, Phonon, etc.
Hopefully more details come out soon.
Looks like I will be declaring Gnome dead soon. Any defender will just be a hypocriteNokia has also just announced that they will be moving Qt towards a matter of open governance for the open-source project.
That's very good.For those of you that were with us for the transition of Qt 3 to Qt 4, we do not plan to repeat that difficult transition with Qt 5. To be explicit here – we believe we can keep source compatibility for the majority of cases, but we believe that breaking binary compatibility is needed.
That's interesting. KDE has long marketed their solution as superior because it could automatically fall back to a non-composited environment and work fine, unlike Gnome3. Also, Ubuntu was just talking about how their Qt based Unity2D desktop was going to assume no hardware acceleration at all times. I can see how this might piss some people off, although i trust it was done for a good reason (better acceleration for most people).Qt will require OpenGL (ES) 2.0 to work.
