Default Qt 5 Alpha Released

After ninemonths of effort, Nokia's Qt Lab has announced the availability ofthe alpharelease of Qt 5. Goals achieved for this release include a new platformabstraction layer, a re-architected graphics stack, and theinclusion of Qt Quick as a first-class citizen (hitting version 2.0, and using Google's V8 Javascript engine to boot). Quoting Lars Knoll:"'Qt 5 should be the foundation for a new way of developingapplications. While offering all of the power of native Qt using C++,the focus should shift to a model, where C++ is mainly used toimplement modular backend functionality for Qt Quick.' I can say thatwe came a good way closer to this vision with Qt 5.0. The model isworking nicely on the embedded side of Qt where UIs are fullscreen. On the desktop, we have laid most of the foundations requiredfor this model, but it&rsquo;ll take us until 5.1 or 5.2 to really take thisinto use."Nokia has posted the the source and detailed releasenotes on the Qt wiki.
