    Phoronix: That Was Quick: Nokia Sells Qt Commercial To Digia

    Following the announcement less than a month ago that Nokia and Microsoft were hooking up over Windows Phone 7 and that Qt and MeeGo would take a back-seat at Nokia, it's being announced this morning that the Qt commercial licensing business has been sold.

    Anyone know what happens to the original Trolltech people? Unlikely to join

        By introducing the up-coming open governance model we will also enable other companies, such as Digia, to more easily contribute to Qt, which will enrich Nokia investments in Qt and benefit and grow the Qt community as a whole.
        Well, that sounds weird. Nokia will make it easier for Digia to contribute to Qt?

        Sounds like maybe Nokia will still be hosting and developing it, and Digia is just in charge of commercial support?

          That's what it sounds like to me. Nokia sounds like they want to keep developing Qt, but not have to deal with the licensing/support aspect of the Qt product.

            In Finnish news site there was that 19 employers in Oslo and California will move to Digia and that it is a bit less than 10% from Nokia's Qt developers.

              The announcement said only Qt people dealing with commercial support are moving to Digia. The rest of the employees stay with Qt.
