qt-project.org to redirect to qt.io/developers

We are happy to announce that our "One Qt" unification project will soon reach its major milestone. On April 1, we will redirect the remaining pages to qt.io. qt-project.org will redirect to qt.io/developers.

If you have been following our progress, you know that the forums have already been redirected since their migration a couple of weeks ago, as well as the documentation. Both services are working well in their new homes.

The last major user service that the redirects will impact is the Qt Wiki. The new wiki has now been open for almost a month, and it has been adopted well by the community. It has seen clearly more activity than the old wiki, as the platform is more familiar to everyone, making it more approachable and familiar to use.

Some of the services in qt.io will require Qt Account credentials for logging in. Both the Qt Wiki and Qt Forum use Qt Account as their login service and we are planning to introduce more services and benefits to Qt Account in the near future.

If you are wondering what happens to the username you had on qt-project.org, it has been reserved for your e-mail address in Qt Account. When you create a Qt Account, please do it with the same e-mail address as you used on qt-project.org, that way you can connect to your old forum information.

It is important to note that while the services for users of Qt are being unified under the qt.io domain, the resources for developing Qt itself are staying in the qt-project.org domain. The codereview with it's repositories will still be at codereview.qt-project.org and the mailing lists are staying at lists.qt-project.org.

For the next phase of improving our developer pages, we would like to hear from you what the homepage of qt.io/developers should look like. We will be updating that page to include information, links and whatever you feel is needed. Please share your thoughts via this thread in the Qt Forum.

As this has been an incremental project together with the community, we have received lots of feedback that have helped this project go as smooth as possible. Naturally, there will be some things that won’t be exactly as they were on qt-project.org and DevNet, however, as we move into maintenance phase, we will also add improvements and new programs that will benefit you.

We thank you for your support in working with us to make this a smooth transition and believing in the “One Qt” initiative. We also thank  the qt-project.org and DevNet site, which established the first digital global home for our ecosystem. We don’t want to say “good bye” to qt-project.org nor to DevNet, but “See ya” as we welcome it into qt.io and our unified ecosystem.

As always, we appreciate any feedback you have.
