I tried to look there for some guides for desktop application development, as I had done before, but found none! Is it only a temporary problem because of Ubuntu going mobile, or I should look someplace else?

No, ubuntu gonna use same apps for phone,tablet and desktop . So they deprecated desktop specific tools like quickly pyGTK etc. If you want to write apps for future ubuntu releases , the only officially recommended way is Ubuntu SDK .

Really? You sure? No more Quickly? That is very strange... – Phlya Jun 23 '13 at 6:31
Yes, now quickly is not a recommended tool. It will available in the repository, but not officially recommended – Tachyons Jun 23 '13 at 10:30
That is a pity, quickly is a great tool. So, no more official information about it... Thank you! – Phlya Jun 23 '13 at 11:48

If I understood correctly your question, the site is surely not only for mobile apps. There is a search field there that can help you:

Thank you very much! So it seems, it just temporarily lacks links to all that stuff, but has it there somewhere. – Phlya Jun 22 '13 at 10:47
