A Norwegian developer has developed a new Qt platform abstraction plug-in to let Qt applications make use of GTK+ for windowing system integration. The Qt apps rely upon GTK+ as a host toolkit to provide GTK menus, GTK for input, and other integration bits.

The focus, of course, is on making Qt applications fit nicer with a GNOME/GTK Linux desktop. The project's goal is "a way to get better integrated, consistent application behaviour on the Linux desktop."

So far rendering is working, basic functionality, simple clipboard interaction, native GTK dialogs and menu bars, libnotify-driven notifications, input events, and more.
