qbs 1.3.0 released
August 26, 2014 by Christian Kandeler | Comments
We are happy to announce the release of qbs 1.3.0 today. Qbs, or Qt Build Suite, is a general cross-platform build tool that uses a language similar to QML for project description. Qbs can be used for any software project, whether it is written in Qt or not and it simplifies the build process for developing projects across multiple platforms.
If you haven't tried it out yet, we strongly encourage you to take it for a spin to see how convenient building with Qbs is! Check out the documentation for more details.
What's new in qbs 1.3?
For this release, we have concentrated on improving the integration with Qt Creator. The main points are:
- Source files can now be added to (and removed from) qbs products via the project tree, just as for qmake projects. Thanks to Thomas Epting for the initiative!
- More care is now taken to reload a project only if it is really necessary.
- In addition, reloading a project has become somewhat faster, particularly in the case where a project file was changed without introducing any semantic differences (e.g. whitespace changes).
We think that these items, combined with a number of important bugfixes, have improved the user experience of working with qbs in Qt Creator a lot.
What else is worth mentioning?
On the language side, it is now possible to set different profiles for particular products. This is important for projects that need to produce binaries for different architectures.
Also, we have once again reduced the memory footprint significantly.
Where do I get it?
Source packages and a binary package for Windows can be found here.
Qt license holders can download the enterprise version of qbs directly from their Qt Account.
