The latest version of Qt Creator, Qt Creator 2.2, made it to beta release today. To read all about it, Eike has the scoop over on Qt Labs. Here is the short version of the story.
Qt Creator 2.2 contains some big (beta) fixes to Qt Creator 2.1, and also some very useful new features that make Qt Creator an even stronger and more flexible IDE.
Some highlights of this beta release, which is now available for download, include:
1. Enhanced QML support. Specifically, lots of improvements for textual QML editing.
2. Debugging improvements. For example, the CDB engine in Qt Creator 2.2 allows 32 bit and 64 bit applications to be debugged separately. Mixed QML/C++ debugging also got what Eike described as ‘a big update’.
3. Improvements to compiler tools.
There is LOTS more is under the hood in Qt Creator 2.2, like improved external tool integration, manual toolchain configuration and the option of changing or adding mime type definitions, which allows users to use different source or header file extensions.
Detailed information on all of the fixes and new features in the release is listed on our change log.
