Where will Qt go? (reprise)

10 months ago, I wrote the article: phosphorescence: Where will Qt go?. In today, despite the fact that Qt 4.7.4 and QtCreator 2.3.1 had been released, Qt again encounters the pinch to be discontinued.

The reason is that Meego is discontinued because Intel decide to marge Meego to Samsung's LiMo, and rename these to Tizen. Tizen announces they recommand to use HTML5 as mobile application platform, not any native applications include Qt.

I agree that the future mobile application platform will be HTML5. And IMO, Qt should go back to just be a library for KDE.
