Qt 5.2 Launches Delivering True Cross-platform Application Development on All Leading Desktop, Embedded and Mobile Platforms
Qt, the leading cross-platform application and user interface (UI) development framework is now available under version Qt 5.2. By adding support for Android and iOS to its extensive range of desktop, mobile and embedded operating system platforms and enhancing its core performance and functionality, Qt 5.2 is positioned as the only cross-platform development framework for UI and non-UI creation to enable intuitive and highly performing platform-independent software applications no matter the target device or screen size. Under the Qt Enterprise offering, Qt 5.2 opens the door to increased mobility of enterprise applications and paves the way for enterprise-ready multi-screen applications that users can experience from desktop to smartphone to automobile to TV.
In addition to Android and iOS support, Qt 5.2 also introduces Qt Cloud Services, developed to address the cloud computing needs of enterprises and developers in such a way that makes Qt the #1 solution that facilitates the whole lifecycle of connected and data-driven Qt applications. Qt Cloud Services’ first offering is data storage and user management also known as, Enginio. The introduction of Qt Cloud Services with Qt 5.2 offers everything needed to develop, test, deploy and manage applications with one Qt.
Qt provides true cross-platform capabilities across all the most widely used and relevant desktop, embedded and mobile platforms, supporting 15 leading operating systems. For the enterprise, this greatly simplifies the process of mobilizing applications throughout the organisation. The implementation of programmes such as bring your own device (BYOD) will benefit not just from streamlined development but also reduced maintenance effort due to the use of one technology across all platforms. With Qt, multi-screen development to enable BYOD for all industries means that an application is developed once and then deployed with the same – or a customized and scalable – UI layout to multiple device types.
Extensive enhancements to Qt’s desktop support are incorporated in Qt 5.2. These include the addition of Qt Windows Extras and Qt Mac Extras, which allow integration with platform specific functionality on Windows and Mac OS X respectively, and improvements to Qt Quick Controls and Qt Widgets.
Qt supports all major desktop operating systems, including Windows, Mac OS X and Linux, embedded operating systems such as embedded Linux, embedded Android, Windows Embedded as well as the most widely deployed real-time operating systems for embedded devices – VxWorks, QNX Neutrino and INTEGRITY® – and popular mobile OSes including Android, iOS, BlackBerry®, and SailFish.
The commercial version of Qt 5.2, Qt Enterprise with extensive additional features such as Charts, Advanced Visualization and Enterprise Tooling, can be downloaded as a 30-day free trial from http://qt.digia.com. The release of Qt 5.2 also introduces the availability of the Qt Mobile edition, an all-in-one high-calibre mobile app development package for cross-platform native Android & iOS creation. More information on the Qt Mobile edition can be found from http://qt.digia.com/qtmobileedition. The Qt open source version can be downloaded from http://qt-project.org.

Used by over 500,000 developers worldwide, Qt is a full framework that enables the development of powerful, interactive and platform-independent applications. Qt applications run native on desktop, embedded and mobile host systems, enabling them to deliver performance that is far superior to other cross-platform application development frameworks. Qt’s support for multiple platforms and operating systems allows developers to save significant time related to porting to other devices.
Qt is created by developers for developers where making developers’ lives easier is top priority. It provides an incomparable developer experience with the tools necessary to create amazing user experiences. Qt is platform agnostic and believes in making sure that all developers are able to target multiple platforms with one framework by simply reusing code. Qt gives freedom to the developer. Code less. Create more. Deploy everywhere.
