    Angry So what?

    The Qt ecosystem now with even less focus on:

    Software freedom
    Linux
    Desktop

    Yeahyeah we all know by now that Nokia is a raving mad house and Digia is offering nothing but "added value" and benefits to commercial clients.

    I am pretty sure that Qt 5 is supposed to support wayland. (Lighthouse is a big part of Qt 5)

    Please grant me a copy of Qt Commercial Charts licensed under LGPL. Im looking forward to this immense justification of your claims.

    Off course the opposite applies as well: No LGPL implies Digia is screwing open source and you are screwing the phoronix forums by using false claims.

    BTW here is a hint for you.

    your point?? that link is just an commercial add on that happens to use QT!!! and check calligra they have some nice chart coding done too (is kde/Qt API), digia can do whatever the hell they want with their propietary licensed version of QT what they can't do is hide/remove/delete/prohibit/etc the use of the LGPL one that is hosted in qt-project.org. So they responsability and (best of interest) is to keep the core libraries synced but no one really care if they keep some fancy or unused(by the OSS side) features alive between releases to please propietary apps that need more time to migrate their apps, so i wouldn't care if they keep qtquick 1.0 (for example) alive in qt5 commercial version.

    so is not like there is 1 version of QT in fact is 2 one maintained by nokia/community/digia in qt-project.org and another private in digia wich they sync back from qt-project.org, so in the worst case scenario we don't even have to fork since they can't touch qt-project.org so don't worry

    This is going to be the most open release of Qt ever released (especially since Qt is supposed to be community maintained now). I don't understand your anger at Digia. Their "added value" is just maintaining and backporting a few new features for the older commerical versions (opensourse apps will just switch to a newer version of Qt anyway). Which means Qt makes money for Digia, who in turn help fund the project. Plus, Qt 5.1 will ship with more desktop components for QML.

    No idea what is going on Nokia-land right now but with Digia maintaing older Qt releases for commerical partners, who cares...

    So Wayland, Weston, X, Qt all seem to be in a position where they can be cobbled together to create the next generation video stack even if not feature complete or stable. What is still missing?
