Nokia sells Qt licensing and services business

Windows 1

Google85 (797021) writes "Now that Nokia has shifted to a Windows Phone-centric smartphone strategy, it's only natural for the company to divest itself of responsibility with regard to the Qt framework. It has been announced Digia will acquire the Qt commercial licensing and services business from Nokia, including the transfer of some 3,500 desktop and embedded customers actively using Qt today."

"divest itself of responsibility" seems too loaded (1)

It seems it's only about licensing / relations side of commercial Qt operations (to another mostly Nordic company), and only with non-mobile customers. Nokia still keeps development, releases Qt under LGPL (they do hint that Qt might become the option for S40)
