KDE contributor and OpenSUSE community manager Jos Poortvliet has written a blog posting on the KDE news site, explaining the KDE project's stance on the future of Qt.
According to the statement, the KDE leadership believes that their agreement with Nokia will ensure that there will be a competitive open source version of Qt for the foreseeable future. Their plans see the open source community around Qt collaborate with Nokia's development teams and continue to build KDE software with the toolkit.
Poortvliet says that KDE will definitely keep using Qt as it is "the best UI development toolkit available".
