What's new in Qt 5.4.0:

  • HTML5 and Web technologies have become more and more important over the last years, and we have spent the last year developing a completely renewed Web offering for Qt. The Qt WebEngine module is the result of a long-term R&D project where we adopted the Chromium Web engine for use within Qt. With Qt 5.4, it is fully supported on the most used desktop and embedded platforms. Qt WebEngine provides you with an easy-to-use API to embed Web content in both Qt Widgets and Qt Quick based applications.
  • The new Qt WebChannel module provides a simple-to-use bridge between QML/C++ and HTML/Javascript. This enables the creation of hybrid applications that use both Qt and Web technologies. Communication between both sides happens by exposing QObjects in the Web context. The module works not only with Qt WebEngine, but also with any other browser engine that has support for Web sockets.
  • As a third component, Qt 5.4 introduces a Technology Preview of a new module called Qt WebView. The Qt WebView module offers a more limited API to embed the web browser that is native to the underlying operating system for use cases where the full Qt WebEngine isn’t needed, or where it can’t be used because of restrictions coming from the underlying OS. In Qt 5.4, the Qt WebView module supports iOS and Android.

Qt is a powerful and comprehensive application development framework that can be used to create cross platform applications, for both desktop and mobile devices. The framework also integrates user friendly and efficient tools designed to streamline the entire process.

Development framework for designing, writing the code, debugging and deploying apps

Creating prototypes using Qt is fairly easy because the framework comes with C++ library classes and a user interface that provides quick access to highly productive tools. Thanks to the Qt Quick language you get to effortlessly create the user interface design in no time.

Furthermore, Qt enables you to recycle your own code, but also comes with a collection of predefined software stacks that can be used to start up prototypes for specific devices.

Packs a plethora of essential tools and sports professional-level development capabilities

Qt integrates modules and add-ons that can help you deal with most issues raised while developing client or server applications: you get to create dynamic 2D charts or visualize 3D charts, you can implement in-app purchasing, the Qt Quick Compiler is capable to build and deploy dynamic Qt files, while the Qt WebView can be used to embed dynamic web contents into your own projects.

Additionally, the built in virtual keyboard will prove to be very useful while developing utilities for touchscreen devices, while the Qt Enterprise Tooling works to improve your productivity level. You can also use the integrated Qt Cloud services if you are an adept of the BYOD policy.

Comprehensive app development framework for creating utilities that can run on any device

Qt proposes intuitive, highly productive and powerful tools for developing, compiling and deploying software projects on any device, regardless of its type and location. If you are looking for a modern framework that integrates both essential and professional-level features, Qt certainly deserves your attention.
