Trolltech, the Norwegian company behind the Qt GUI framework, is no more. Earlier this year it was announced that Nokia is acquiring Trolltech and they have now decided they don't like the names Trolltech or Qtopia. Nokia has renamed Trolltech to "Qt Software" and for their mobile/embedded Qtopia framework they are now calling that "Qt Extended". It was also announced earlier this year that Qt is moving to the GPLv3 license. Head on over to the old Trolltech website to meet the new Qt Software.

Qt Software has also released the Linux version of Qt Eclipse Integration under the GPL license, the Qt Jambi 4.4.3 release, and the release of Qt Extended 4.4. Qt Extended 4.4 provides a modular architecture for feature selection, advanced touch-based user interface, IP communications support based on Telepathy, and numerous other improvements.
