Qt Project Releases Qt 5

Jan 03, 2013

Qt 5 offers developers enhanced productivity, flexibility, and easier cross-platform portability.

The Qt Project has announced the release of Qt 5.0, the latest version of the Qt C++ UI framework. According to the website, Qt 5 lets developers quickly create applications with intuitive user interfaces for multiple targets, and Qt’s modular C++ class library and tools let developers create applications for one platform and easily build and deploy on another platform.

According to the announcement, Qt 5 includes amazing graphic capabilities and performance. Qt 5 uses an OpenGL-based scene graph to accelerate the graphics of Qt Quick, making it possible to create user interfaces with animations, impressive graphical effects, and particle systems, even on mobile and embedded devices.

The latest version provides enhanced developer productivity and flexibility, with improved support for JavaScript and QML in Qt 5, while maintaining the C++ foundation and Qt Widget support. It also provides easier cross-platform portability with the new structure of Essentials and Add-ons modules, along with the consolidation of Qt Platform Abstraction. Qt 5.0 comes as a full SDK package with binaries for Linux (64- and 32-bit), Mac OS X (10.7 and 10.8), and Windows. The package also comes with Qt Creator 2.6, examples, and full documentation.
