Qt 5.4 Beta Available

Published Friday October 17th, 2014 | by

I am extremely happy to announce that Qt 5.4 Beta is now available for download. There are a lot of new and interesting things in Qt 5.4 and I will try to summarize the most important highlights in this blog post.

Powerful Web Offering with Qt WebEngine

As the importance of HTML5 has grown we want to provide the best support for HTML5 within the Qt technology offering. The Qt WebEngine, a long-term R&D project based on the Chromium web engine has now reached fully supported version on desktop and embedded platforms.

Qt WebEngine provides a convenient API for both Qt Widgets and Qt Quick for using the Chromium web engine. Besides plain web viewing purposes Qt WebEngine takes full benefit of the whole Qt graphics stack integration allowing you to mix and overlay native Qt controls with web contents and OpenGL shaders. Of course, the fact that Qt provides a full application framework around the web engine makes Qt WebEngine truly an unparalled web engine API.

The new Qt WebChannel module acts as the bridge between QML/C++ and HTML/JavaScript allowing you to expose QObjects into the web context.

For platforms that do not allow distribution of Qt WebEngine as well as use cases where a full-blown web engine is not needed Qt 5.4 will introduce a technology preview of a new module called Qt WebView. It supports embedding the native web engines of the underlying operating system into Qt, and is currently available for Android and iOS. Because of this, Qt WebView also gives a convenient light-weight solution for simple web document integration. Qt WebView will be available with Qt 5.4 final as a separate add-on.

Qt 5.3.2 Update for Device Creation

Published Tuesday October 14th, 2014 | by

For creating devices with Qt, we offer a whole toolkit consisting of Qt libraries, pre-built but customizable software stack (Boot to Qt), value-add components and full embedded tooling around the Qt Creator IDE.

Now, It’s time to update our offering by updating the pre-built Boot to Qt software stack with the latest Qt 5.3.2 and upgrade some of the provided value-add components. Also Qt Creator IDE has been updated since our last update. To read more about the whole toolkit for creating devices with Qt see the documentation overview.

Qt 5.3.2 packs a bunch of bug fixes and improvements to functionality based on feedback and reports we have 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. See more from the Qt 5.3.2 release blog post.

Many of our value-add components have been updated as well. The Qt Quick Compiler has gotten it’s first update, Qt Quick Enterprise Controls have been improved by adding the frequently requested Tumbler control and the Qt Virtual Keyboard is now updated to version 1.2 that provides new layouts and features.

Qt Creator IDE has also been updated with a patch release to version 3.2.2. The Qt Creator 3.2.2 patch release contains a few essential fixes for the embedded functionality on top of fixes provided by the Qt Creator 3.2.1 update from about a month ago.

qbs 1.3.0 released

Published Tuesday August 26th, 2014 | by

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.

Qt Creator 3.2.0 released

Published Tuesday August 19th, 2014 | by

We are happy to announce the Qt Creator 3.2.0 release today. This release adds many smaller and larger features, as well as fixing bugs. A few examples:

  • Block selections in text editors now allow you to do “column editing”, meaning that all selected lines are edited simultaneously (Qt Creator Manual)
  • Context help can now be configured to open in an external window (without disabling Help mode)
  • Support for C99 designated initializers and concatenated strings was added to the C++ code model, as well as improvements to encoding handling and lambda support and many other things
  • More panes are now searchable with Ctrl+F, for example the project tree
  • The QML profiler received many performance and stability improvements again

Enterprise Qt Creator users can now also use the QML profiler to debug their JavaScript memory usage in QML. (This is only available when using Qt 5.4 for the debugged application.)

Also have a look at our change log, for a more complete overview. I also want to thank the more than 50 contributors to this version of Qt Creator.

You find the opensource version on the Qt Project download page, and Enterprise packages on the Qt Account Portal. Please post issues in our bug tracker. You also can find us on IRC on #qt-creator on irc.freenode.net, and on the Qt Creator mailing list.

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.

Introducing Android Injection with Qt Enterprise Embedded 5.3.1

Published Thursday July 3rd, 2014 | by

We released Qt 5.3.1 a week ago and now we’ve updated the Qt Enterprise Embedded offering as well. In addition to the Qt framework upgrade, we have developed a few new interesting features and also updated the tooling and some of the enterprise add-on features. We are especially proud about our new Android injection solution that lets you take the Boot to Qt software stack into a large variety of Android devices with little effort.

With this update we are also introducing the first Qt supported CoM, Computer-on-Module, for embedded Linux as we announce official support and pre-built binaries for Apalis i.MX6 CoM module from our Qt Technology Partner Toradex. Using the Apalis i.MX6 module from Toradex with our pre-built Qt stack, you can reduce the needed HW and SW effort enabling fast and cost-efficient creation of various embedded systems directly leveraging the state-of-the-art features of this powerful combination.
