Qt5 .. KDE5?

Filed under
KDE

As most of those who read my blog have already heard, Qt5 is on its way. The target is 2012 and the focus is QtQuick where there is a high degree of separation between display and data and things are rendered using a hardware accelerated (read: OpenGL) scene graph. This is very much in line with where we are heading with Plasma as well. Exciting times!

What does this mean for KDE? Will there be a KDE5 in 2012 as well? What would a KDE5 look like? I know these are the questions on some of your minds, if only because some of you have already started asking myself and others about it. Wink

The short answer is that we don't know yet, but we're working on it. Not a very satisfying answer is it? Well, short answers are rarely much fun.

So here's the slightly longer version.
