We are happy to announce the Qt Creator 3.3.0 release today. This release comes with a great set of new features as well as a big amount of bug fixes.
I talked about many of the new features and improvements already in the beta release blog post. For today’s release, Alessandro locked himself in his office for a while and created this “What’s new in Qt Creator 3.3″ video!

If you have used Qt Support before then you may have had to deal with a bit of back and forth with Support trying to get to the heart of the problem that you are having. Therefore in order to try and speed up that process along in the future we have the following tips for you to help you ensure we get all the information that might be useful to us right away.
– First check that you have all the dependencies for building Qt as indicated here:
– If the problem occurs when building Qt from source, then send the entire output from configure as well as the output from the make command so we can see everything that has happeend in the run up to the build issue
– If installing from one of the binary installers then re-run the installer with the –verbose option and send the log file it generates Read more …

We are happy to announce the release of Qt Creator 3.3 RC1. Please have a look at the beta release blog post or the change log, for an overview of the new features and key improvements that are waiting for you in this new minor version.
This is the point where we think that we are almost ready to release 3.3.0, so it is a great time for you to download and try the RC, and give us last minute feedback through our bug tracker, the mailing list, or on IRC (#qt-creator on irc.freenode.net).
We are happy to announce that we released Qt Creator 3.3 beta1 today.
It comes with enhanced support for splitting editors and additional editor windows. You can now drag & drop editors between splits by dragging the new file type icon, next to the document drop down (see screenshot). Hold the Ctrl key (or Option key on OS X) to open another editor on the same document, instead of moving it. The navigation views (such as Projects and Open Documents) also support dragging files onto splits. Dropping files from the system onto a Qt Creator window now will also open the file in the appropriate split.
We are happy to announce the release of Qt Creator 3.2.2. This version of Qt Creator mainly fixes compatibility issues with Xcode 6 on OS X. See the change log for a complete list of changes. Also, we added the option to use Qt Creator under the LGPL v3. For more details about this addition, please check out the blog post “Adding LGPL v3 to Qt”.
Today we have released Qt 5.3.2, the second patch update to Qt 5.3. In addition to improvements and fixes to Qt functionality it also packs Qt Creator 3.2.1 along with nice additions and patches to Qt Quick Compiler, Qt Quick Enterprise Controls and Qt Purchasing.
With Qt 5.3.2 we are providing nice set of bug fixes and enhancements thanks to all the feedback and reports we’ve received! Qt 5.3.2 maintains backward and forward compatibility, both source and binary, with Qt 5.3.0 and the latest, 5.3.1, which was released this June. The list of changes can be found from the change files for each module.
We are also releasing nice updates to a bunch of add-on modules for commercial Qt licensees, all installable through your Qt online installer. The new and exciting Qt Quick Compiler gets its first update and we are adding the long-awaited Tumbler control to Qt Quick Enterprise Controls! Here’s the overview of updates to Add-On modules: Read more …
We are happy to announce the release of qbs 1.3.0 today. Qbs, or Qt Build Suite, is a general cross-platform build tool that uses a language similar to QML for project description. Qbs can be used for any software project, whether it is written in Qt or not and it simplifies the build process for developing projects across multiple platforms.
If you haven’t tried it out yet, we strongly encourage you to take it for a spin to see how convenient building with Qbs is! Check out the documentation for more details.
What’s new in qbs 1.3?
For this release, we have concentrated on improving the integration with Qt Creator. The main points are:
Source files can now be added to (and removed from) qbs products via the project tree, just as for qmake projects. Thanks to Thomas Epting for the initiative!
More care is now taken to reload a project only if it is really necessary.
In addition, reloading a project has become somewhat faster, particularly in the case where a project file was changed without introducing any semantic differences (e.g. whitespace changes).
We think that these items, combined with a number of important bugfixes, have improved the user experience of working with qbs in Qt Creator a lot.
What else is worth mentioning?
On the language side, it is now possible to set different profiles for particular products. This is important for projects that need to produce binaries for different architectures.
Also, we have once again reduced the memory footprint significantly.
Note: With Qt Creator 3.2 we drop support for OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard). The technical reason for this is that Apple does not support any kind of C++11 on that OS version. Of course that does not affect on which platforms you can run your Qt applications on. But it is not possible to run the Qt Creator 3.2 binaries on 10.6, and it also is not possible to compile Qt Creator 3.2 on 10.6 with the tool chains provided by Apple.
