The first alpha
of the Qt5 toolkit is available, showing the direction that Qt
is taking. A lot of the work appears to be under-the-hood restructuring,
but there's a number of new features as well. "There was one basic vision driving a lot of the Qt 5 work:
'Qt 5 should be the foundation for a new way of developing
applications. While offering all of the power of native Qt using C++, the
focus should shift to a model, where C++ is mainly used to implement
modular backend functionality for Qt Quick.'
