This can only mean KDE5 coming is close (1, Funny)

4.4 will be the last of the 4 series. Now that the system no longer crashes continuously there is little left to do with it. The developers are already working on a brand new interface.
To reduce the memory footprint and ease the transition for new users the whole system will be reduced to a single "run" widget. On clicking it, the system will crash. Devs are hoping to have it ready to release 5.0 by during the next month and new distributions will include it in their April releases.

FIRST release!

GLSL (1)

Excellent! I am really interested in seeing how the GLSL support turned out.

Qt is the best Cross-Platform Framework I've worked with so far. And while it doesn't have the integration and elegance of Apple's APIs, it works on the three big platforms.

Qt Creator (1)

Not to forget the parallel release of Qt Creator 1.3, which is the single best C++ IDE for Unix platforms, and a very worthy competitor to VC++ on Windows (the latter has more features, but is more heavyweight and slow as well).

gcc (1)

One important thing for me when judging the quality of a new release of a software lib/ development platform would be if it is usable with gcc. Qt is. If you look at the implications of compatibility with gcc (even a certain version), this means much: it may look terrible on some arcane systems, but it will work on all systems that give you a gcc dev env. As long as every lib you use has a decent open source license, like GPL, MIT or BSD that is.
