Digia Completes Its Nokia Qt Acquisition

Digia and Nokia have already closed on their deal for Qt to be offloaded from the Windows Phone vendor.

Knoll Lars passed along word that yesterday marked the Qt acquisition being closed for Digia. "I wanted to let you all know that the acquisition of Qt by Digia has been completed yesterday. Many Trolls in Oslo and Berlin have their first day working for Digia today. In Oslo we had lots of champagne and cake in the morning, giving us a pretty good start into the day ;-)" (Sadly though, there's many former Nokia Qt developers in Australia without work.)

Some of what's changed now with the deal closing include:
1. The CLA's of all contributors haven been assigned from Nokia to Digia. This is mainly an FYI, as nobody who has signed a CLA will need to take any explicit action here.

2. All traffic to qt.nokia.com will be redirected to qt.digia.com.

3. Digia has taken responsibility for the qt-project.org infrastructure and committed itself to continue funding it.

4. Digia has entered into the KDE Free Qt foundation agreement and is from now on bound by it.

5. With the acquisition, the Nokia copyrights on the Qt code base all transfer to Digia. Because of this we will need to change the copyright headers in all Qt source files from Nokia to Digia. In addition, we will re-add a small clause about commercial licensing into the headers to list all possible licensing variants there. The reason for adding the commercial piece is mainly transparency (because these are the possible licensing options). In addition, this change will enable us to avoid having to rewrite licensing headers during the release creating in the future and keep the same, unchanged source files in all releases (OSS and commercial).
More details can be found in this mailing list message.
