LXDE-Qt Preview (LXDE blog)
[Development] Posted Jul 4, 2013 17:57 UTC (Thu) by jake
The LXDE desktop environment project has a preview of its new Qt-based development branch (including a screen shot). It uses Qt 4, but there are plans to move to Qt 5.1 eventually.
"To be honest, migrating to Qt will cause mild elevation of memory usage compared to the old Gtk+ 2 version. Don't jump to the conclusion too soon. Migrating to gtk+ 3 also causes similar increase of resource usage.
Since gtk+ 2 is no longer supported by its developer and is now being deprecated, porting to Qt is not a bad idea at the moment."
