This is *GREAT* news!
Digia have always been hard workers including all of
their work on Qt (as a Nokia contractor) before most
of you probably heard of them.
Their statement that they will "bring back focus on Qt's
desktop and embedded platform support" is also welcome
news as is their aggressive stance towards supporting
Qt on Android, iOS, and Windows 8; I hope there's a
subtext there that implies Windows Phone 8 as well.
And thanks, Nokia, for *FINALLY* doing the right thing
with Qt. It was clear from the moment you abandoned
Symbian and Maemo/MeeGo to instead embrace Microsoft
that Qt had to go and I'm glad you divested it before
strangling it to death.
(And more personally, I'm glad my rumour of last week
was confirmed so quickly; once it became worldwide news
with my name attached, I'd have hated to have been wrong! ;-) )
Here's to a strong future for Qt, Digia, and all of us!
