    Not really, the KDE agreement makes sure that nothing bad happens to the Qt code. It can't be turned proprietary.

    There is zero incentive for anyone trying to close Qt. Such a move would be a financial suicide.

    The current arrangement allows for closed-source companies to directly fund Qt development, resulting in a GPL toolkit for all of us. I can live with that.

    and wayland support improved a lot and scenegraph + shaders renders like a freaking beast, this version should allow very badass effects on the crappiest GPU you can install android on and make your high end phone/tablet GPU feels like an 7950 and they put some nice effort in support AVX/AVX2[my bulldozer CPU liky] and C++11 in this revision.

    now i have to wait only for subsurfaces to land in qt5.1.1 or 5.2 to begin porting my embedded projects to qt5+wayland+mer [ODroid X2]

    great job digia and qt community for this release

    btw Mir is not supported by Qt/Community or Digia, it only lives downstream and it doesn't support half Qt yet including scenegraph or glsl, QMir basically support the stuff you see in their demos [texture render/surface reposition/ full screen render/ some simple effects as shadows] but nothing more, so in theory you can't simply use Qt to reach wayland and mir yet if you use scenegraph[QML] because it will segfault or try to fallback to X11 and segfault.

    before ubuntu 14.04 i won't even bother in try complex Qt apps with mir

By being moral and just to software freedom they have to kill off the freedom and relicense to an non-free license. That is like killing your own family. The contributor license sucks as much as KDEs rights.
    this is soooo illogical that i can understand if you are trolling or confirming the post, rewrite your post when you are sober plz

    in case you are trolling, kde can license Qt code as lgpl or gpl or gpl2 or whatever free license they like so i can't see your point [did you read the actual agreement?]

    in case you are not trolling, yes KDE make sure digia stay clean and abide to the GPL version[which again digia is the first interested party in keep the community on, otherwise they just burned all the cash they paid to nokia for no reason]

    You... a human being literally can't be this stupid.

    Its complete and utter financial suicide for Digia to close up Qt, and its complete and utter reputational and credibility suicide for KDE to NOT open up Qt if Digia WOULD close up.

    Never doubt the human capacity for stupidity, otherwise you'll be constantly surprised.

    When GIMP stops using the GIMP Toolkit? Somewhere between when pigs fly and when hell freezes over, I suspect.
