Lars Knoll, Qt Chief architect di Digia (software house finlandese che ha acquisito Qt da Nokia), ha annunciato la disponibilità della release candidate di Qt 5.0

I'm very happy to announce that the first release candidate for Qt 5.0.0 has just been released.

We have been completely restructuring the Qt documentation to make it easier to access. Please have a look and check out the new docs. We hope that they will make it easier to find your way and access the information you’re searching for.

The examples have also received a lot of love to make sure it is easy to get started with Qt. They can be easily accessed, build and launched from Qt Creator’s Welcome screen.

A final set of a few additional API changes has also made it into the release candidate. This release fixes the API set for Qt 5.0. Between now and the final release we will only make very minor adjustments to the API.

La lista dei cambiamenti introdotti in questa versione rispetto alla 4.0 si trova a questa pagina. La documentazione è disponibile a questa pagina. Il download della RC per Windows, Linux e Mac OS X è possibile da questa pagina.

Digia, società di software e servizi finlandese, che in precedenza aveva acquistato da Nokia le attività commerciali e di sviluppo di Qt (libreria multipiattaforma open source), ha annunciato che sta acquisendo l'intera azienda e le attività Qt da Nokia.

Digia, the software powerhouse listed on the NASDAQ OMX Helsinki exchange (DIG1V), today announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire Qt software technologies and Qt business from Nokia. Following the acquisition Digia becomes responsible for all the Qt activities formerly carried out by Nokia. These include product development, as well as the commercial and open source licensing and service business. Following the acquisition, Digia plans to quickly enable Qt on Android, iOS and Windows 8 platforms.

L'accordo renderà Digia responsabile di tutte le attivitàprecedenti di Qt, tra cui lo sviluppo di prodotti, servizi, e le licenze commerciali e open source. La società stima che oltre 450.000 sviluppatori e "migliaia di aziende" hanno usato Qt.

Inoltre una volta acquisita Qt, Digia prevede di "attivare rapidamente Qt sulle piattaforme Android, iOS e Windows 8".

Non sono note al momento le cifre dell'operazione, secondo l'agenzia di stampa Reuters la cifra sborsata da Digia sarebbe minore rispetto ai 150 milioni di dollari che Nokia aveva pagato a Trolltech nel 2008 per acquisire Qt.

Rilasciata la prima beta di openSuse 12.2

On the graphical side this milestone now features gimp 2.8 (with single window option) and the latest updates to GNOME and KDE packages (including Qt 4.8.1 and KDE SC 4.8.3, GNOME 3.4.2). Heavy work has been going on in the area of bringing Xorg 12.1 and split-up Xorg packages to Factory. Moving from there, the new graphical stack combined with the new compiler tools (llvm, GCC 4.7) and the new Mesa can bring cool new stuff: llvmpipe bringing gnome-shell to non-accelerated systems and the svga gallium driver featuring 3D support to VMware VMs. We have switched from the old bootsplash to the modern Plymouth with our own plymouth openSUSE theme.
