Qt Updates: Qt 4.5.1, Creator 1.1 and Plugin for Visual Studio

Apr 24, 2009

The Qt Software division of Nokia has fixed problems in Qt 4.5.1 and is releasing an improved Qt Creator 1.1. Also new is a plugin to integrate Qt with Microsoft's Visual Studio.

A whole lot of minor changes went into Qt Creator 1.1: syntax highlighting and code completion for qdoc and doxygen tags, a split editor rework, and a new option to start in an external terminal. The Qt development environment now also supports JavaScript and provides a wrapper script for the Linux libQt3Support library to prevent crashes in, say, openSUSE 11.1.

Qt Creator, sleek and editor-like, first appeared October 2008. Developers informed about its progress in a blog. All details of Creator 1.1, its third version so far, are included in release notes.

Completely new is a plugin for Microsoft's Visual Studio programming environment (Qt is also under LGPL). Qt 4.5.1 developers also resolved a bunch of bugs (see the Qt release notes). The current graphic framework is available with Creator in a new build of the Qt SDK (2009.2). The download site includes all details.
