Posted Aug 2, 2012

Nokia Corporation is shutting down their Brisbane, Australia offices for Qt.  Qt is a cross-platform application and UI framework that the company acquired in 2008.  The news about the shut became public after an employee posted on the Qt mailing list.  The teams at the Brisbane office worked on Qt3D, QtDeclarative, QtMultimedia, QtSensors and QtSystems modules.  The office will be closed down on August 31st.  The developers at the office will retain their status within the project and can continue to make community contributions to Qt.  Qt will continue to be financially backed by Digia, a company that has managed Qt’s licensing since last year.
