Aha, my conclusion is incorrect. :)

Looks like Qt4 was around in late 2005:

Same article, I read the following:

"The next major version of Qt will be Qt 5. It is expected to be released in 2012. This new version will mark a major change of paradigm in the platform, with hardware-accelerated graphics...."

I wonder whether than means hardware graphics acceleration will become a requirement to use Qt5 based apps. The GNOME developers traveled that same road with GNOME 3.
