Qt 5.3 Alpha Released
Phoronix: Qt 5.3 Alpha Released
Digia has released the first alpha release of the Qt 5.3 tool-kit this morning...
I don't care about SPDY and other cloud/network crapshit, I care about the desktop, about global shortcuts to finally work with qt5 (e.g. to be able to make a decent audio player to respond to the global "Play" key), which for now you have to learn to build yourself.
EDIT: And they should stop being obsessed with mobile stuff, there's more than enough fart apps on both Android and the iPhone.

If you do not care about SPDY then do not use it.

How about helping to make that work? Contributions are very welcome. If you can build it yourself then you could possibly integrate in Qt and submit it for merging (Beats squealing about it).

That's not the point, the more they work on mobiles the less they work on the desktop and it shows, has also been brought up to their attention on their mailing list several times.

In the end since I'm not paid I gave up with their shitty bureaucracy.
And no - the fart thing is fair, because 99% of mobile apps are pretty much crap nobody needs.
