Today Qt Software made an very important announcement: They are going to release Qt 4.5 with an additional license option: the LGPL. This means that Qt can be used in closed-source-software (and more restrictive OSS licenses) without paying royalties to Qt Software. This is great news. I hope that now there will be a SWT-Qt binding for eclipse which could improve the speed and responsiveness of eclipse by an order of magnitude (if it’s done right).

This is very, very promising.
