From what I hear, TrollTech is also working on GPL versions of QT 3.0 for Mac and Win so opensource programmers can write crossplatform code using QT. Does anyone know anything about that?
I don't know about GPL'ed versions, but I'd doubt it for 2 reasons. First of all, they've said that the reason they released the X11 version under the GPL and not the Windows version is because Linux, *BSD, and so on tend to form complete free software systems while the same can't be said of Windows. Second of all, what "work" would they need to be doing to release a GPL'ed version for Win32 or Mac? The library is already written, and there's no licensed code in there - it's all written in-house.
They do have a "non-commercial" version of Qt/Win32 available for download, but it's binary only and requires MSVC 6. It's also only Qt 2.3.1, but Trolltech plans to release a non-commercial version of Qt 3 in the next few days.
I just gotta throw in the fact that I love Qt :) Best Toolkit Ever(tm).
GNU GPL: Free as in herpes.
