Qt 5.4.1 Description
Qt 5.4.1 enables companies to build software applications that run across multiple desktop operating systems and embedded devices, without rewriting the source code. It includes an intuitive API and a rich C++ class library, integrated tools for GUI development and internationalization, and support for Java and C++ development.
For companies from a broad spectrum of industries, Qt 5.4.1 shortens time-to-market and increases productivity by allowing them to leverage software investments made on one platform across many others.
With Qt 5.4.1 any developer will be able to build software utilities faster and using different development platforms.
- Qt Everywhere: Cross-Platform Support from Desktop to Embedded Devices
- Rich Set of Application Building Blocks
- Integrated Developer Tools for Rapid GUI Design and I18N
- C++ and Java Language Support
- Add-On Products to Boost Productivity
News in Qt 5.4.1:
- Qt 5.4.1 restores binary compatibility for Qt 5.3.2 (and the Qt 5 series) on Windows. Unfortunately Qt 5.4.0 broke binary compatibility on Windows when using MSVC 2012 or MSVC 2013, which is now fixed in Qt 5.4.1, and thus it maintains backward and forward compatibility with the Qt 5 series (except for Qt 5.4.0). Qt 5.4.1 also fixes many of the known issues of Qt 5.4.0, including building Qt on Linux without dbus (QTBUG-43205). Starting with Qt 5.4.1, QtDBus is enabled for all builds.
- Other important fixes in Qt 5.4.1 include enabling JIT by default in the Qt Quick Engine (QTBUG-43171), a couple of critical fixes to OpenGL (QTBUG-43178 and QTBUG-43318), and fixes to Mac binaries (QTBUG-42594, QTBUG-43100). Qt 5.4.1 also provides a large number of improvements to WinRT (for example QTBUG-41769, QTBUG-43862, and QTBUG-44196), and adds support for Windows 10 Technical Preview (QTBUG-43413).
- The device creation reference stacks for embedded Linux and embedded Android have also been updated to use Qt 5.4.1. There are some improvements in functionality, for example better support for compiling projects using embedded Linux toolchains and having add-on modules built into the image included in the generated Qt Creator custom Kit.
