Qt 5.4 Will Support Applications Under A Wayland Compositor

While Qt5 has always been promoted as being friendly towards Wayland and working to avoid its Linux dependency on X11, with the upcoming Qt 5.4 release is going to be the first version where there's out-of-the-box support for running Qt applications under a Wayland compositor -- i.e. integrating the Qt Wayland module.

Qt3D 2.0 Is A Rewrite Of Qt's 3D Support

Two years ago the Qt3D module was showing lots of promise for 3D support within the popular, cross-platform toolkit. However, just before the Qt 5.0 release, Nokia shutdown their Qt Brisbane office that among other Qt modules was responsible for the work on Qt3D. Nokia's late actions with Qt prior to selling it off to Digia was a a big blow and led to Qt3D being demoted. Fortunately, Qt3D 2.0 is coming along as a maintained, rewritten version of the 3D support for Qt.
