Digia, the current owner of the Qt toolkit, has announced that Qt will be split off into a separate company that will be able to focus more on commercial licensing. "The importance of Digia’s commercial business for securing the future of Qt cannot be underestimated as it drives Qt’s foundation and everyday operations. A look into the commit statistics shows that around 75% of all code submissions to qt-project.org come from Digia employees. In addition, Digia manages the release process and the CI and testing infrastructure, thus covering more than 85% of the costs of developing Qt."
