Visual Studio Add-In 1.2.1 for Qt 5 Released
April 11, 2013 by Tuukka Turunen | Comments
It has been a busy week - today we are releasing Visual Studio Add-in 1.2.1 for Qt 5. This is mainly a bug fix release targeting problems found in previous releases. In addition to bug fixes the Add-In now supports Visual Studio 2012 debugger visualizers for Qt 5 classes. On the commercial version there is also support for Qt Quick.
As before, at least Visual Studio Professional is required to use the Add-in. Supported versions are Visual Studio 2012 (update 2 recommended), 2010 and 2008.
Highlights of Visual Studio Add-In 1.2.1 include:
- Qt Quick project wizard, QML keyword highlighting and QML file preview in the commercial version
- Visual Studio 2012 debugger visualizers for Qt 5 classes
- Possibility to use Qt 4 Add-in and Qt 5 Add-in in same computer (in turns)
- Incorrect Qt 5 library/module names and include paths fixed
You can find the detailed list of changes to the Visual Studio Add-in 1.2.1 in the change log.
Using Qt 5 VS Add-in and Qt 4 VS Add-in together
Qt 4 Visual Studio Add-in is not allowed to run at same time with the Qt 5 Add-in, if found it will be closed. It is however possible to use both Qt 4 and Qt 5 Add-ins in turns. The user must choose Qt-version within the Add-in manager (both can not be active simultaneously). Extra care must be taken to use correct project and class wizards because both Qt 4 and Qt 5 ones are visible if both Add-ins are installed in system.
Qt Quick support in the commercial version
Digia has created additional functionality to the Visual Studio Add-In available only for the commercial licensees of Qt. The commercial version has new Qt Quick2 Application project wizard for creating project that can contain both QML and C++ code. The commercial Add-In also provides keyword highlighting for QML files and new preview feature for launching qmlviewer.
Get it from the Customer Portal of Qt Project Downloads
The new Visual Studio Add-In 1.2.1 is available for both commercial and open-source users. If you hold a valid commercial license, you can download the new Visual Studio Add-In from the Customer Portal. The open-source version can be downloaded from the Qt Project. If you are not a commercial licensee, but want to try out the additional functionality, you can try our the commercial version with our free 30-day evaluation.
I hope you enjoy developing Qt 5 applications with Visual Studio. Please provide us feedback either through the commercial support or via the Qt Project mailing lists.
