"This news was announced at the Gran Canaria Desktop Summit.
While the switch to Qt may seem a major defeat for the GNOME
community, this isn't exactly true, as many of the underlying
technologies will still be GNOME-centric.
"Basically, the main toolkit for the Maemo platform will become
Qt instead of Gtk+, with Gtk+ becoming a community maintained part
of Maemo. However, all of the underlying technologies will still be
GNOME-centric, such as glib, dbus, gvfs, bluez, telepathy, avahi,
gstreamer, gconf, and so on."
