    BTW thanks for the link to that ML - Qt on WP8 might explain things. OTOH it looks like Nokia may not survive until WP8 devices are out.

    It is a mailing list post by someone working for Nokia on Qt.
    And I never forbade you to post opinions, just as I am allowed to ask others to stay with facts instead of gut feeling, especially if the gut feeling is wrong (if he was already fired, he would have written that ? instead he clearly wrote that he is still employed).

    If you have actual info newer than that, I am open for that, but keep your gut feeling out of it and let's stay with facts.

    I do not know.
    Nothing Nokia did since the MS collaboration agreement makes sense in my eyes.
    Keep on developing without an OS to run it on is pretty insane but it is good for Qt.

    Why stay with facts when the gut feeling can do the same, right?
    The last fact I've read from a Nokia person is this from a week ago:


    Summary: Nokia's legal team ordered a short suspension of Qt commits, but Qt development is secure at the very least until Qt 5.0 is released. Nothing after that has been decided, yet.

    You are confusing Qt developers with MeeGo developers. In Qt there is no big change in developer workforce employed by Nokia.
    With no platform of theirs using Qt anymore, what cause do they possibly have to keep Qt in? Meego -> gone, Meltemi -> gone, Symbian -> long gone.

    It's my gut reaction that the Qt guys were included in the last "slashing a third of our workforce" announcement.

    what's more interesting is, charts also show that Intel has been quite active lately contributing to Qt as well. Is this an indication that they are coming back to Qt? That will be an interesting development.
    I'm pretty sure it's ?just? Wayland (although I'm currently too lazy to check for Intel commits to other Qt parts but there shouldn't be many). It is Intel?s interest to push Wayland adoption and for that Intel wants to make sure at least the popular toolkits support Wayland well. Qt does not get special treatment here. Intel is also involved porting GTK to Wayland as you can see in the ?2011-2012? line in http://git.gnome.org/browse/gtk+/tre...oard-wayland.c
    Same for Clutter: http://git.gnome.org/browse/clutter/...kend-wayland.c
    And also the same with EFL: http://trac.enlightenment.org/e/brow.../ecore_wayland (the Rob Bradford mentioned there is this guy: http://www.robster.org.uk/blog/?p=198 )

    It's Nokia who owns the copyright and hires the most developers. There should be nothing stopping them from selling the Trolltech unit foward.
