Nokia-owned Qt Software has followed through on its promises to open up source code repositories for its Qt cross-platform GUI application framework. The company has invited developers to contribute to a web-based source code management system based on Git and Gitorious, and published a roadmap for the Linux-compatible framework.

Released in early March, Qt 4.5 was billed as the first Qt release to be offered under a more open LGPL (“Lesser” or “Library” General Public License) licensing option, alongside existing commercial and GPL license options. The licensing expansion is part of a larger effort to make Qt a fully transparent open-source project, as promised in conjunction with the Qt 4.5 release.
