Launch of the Qt Project imminent…but not on Monday

Published Friday October 14th, 2011 | by

Followers of the Qt Project will know we announced October 17 as our target launch date for the project.

Unfortunately this date is no longer achievable, and we will be delayed by what we expect will be three to four days. A huge amount of hard work has been done, and we are down to a few very important final steps that we are taking a great deal of care with.

In addition, the administrative processes surrounding the creation of the Qt Project hosting entity are very near completion, which we’re glad about :)

We appreciate everyone’s support and patience, and look forward to announcing the official start of the Qt Project very soon.

Hi Lars,

great news. Just a stupid question (haven’t followed the entire story from the beginning): Will the new “contribution model” also apply to 4.8.x bugfix releases, or is this “Qt 5 only”?

My guess: Friday 21st. Always a last minute deal, isn’t it? ;-D

Frederik Gladhorn says:

@Oliver: Open Governance is going to be launched for Qt 5.

Bystander says:

@Oliver, @Frederik: According to, it applies to Qt4.8 too.

Lars Knoll says:

Open Governance will apply to Qt 4.8 as well. However we’re prioritizing Qt 5 for the Launch in a couple of days.

I am confused:
– Which Qt “Project” ? Eh, here it is ?
– Will be Qt5 released, or Project or.. ?
