Qt Creator 3.4.0 released

We are happy to announce the release of Qt Creator 3.4.0 today. I'm highlighting some of the many new features below. Please take a look at our change log for a more complete list of features and fixes.

The C++ support in Qt Creator now has a new refactoring action that moves all function definitions out of a class declaration. We also added auto-completion for signals and slots in Qt 5 style connects. Just type the "&" and let auto-completion figure out the type of the object. Also new is a locator filter, All Included C/C++ Files, which finds all files that are used in your project by including them, even if they are not explicitly mentioned in your project. The filter is part of the default that is used when you just type in the Locator input field, and shares the shortcut string with Files in Any Project.

For users of the Professional or Enterprise edition we added experimental integration for Qt Test based auto tests and Qt Quick tests. It adds another navigation pane Tests, which lists the tests defined in your project, provides ways to run individual or sets of tests, and nicely shows test results in a new Test Results output pane. To try it, open Help > About Plugins (Qt Creator > About Plugins, on OS X), turn on Utilities > AutoTest, and restart Qt Creator. We also moved the Clang static analyzer integration out of experimental state. If you have at least Clang 3.6 installed, it now also supports using it with MSVC and MinGW. We also added suppression of individual diagnostics for a file, and a new page in Projects mode for managing these.

Other new features include

  • Changing the environment for running external tools
  • Searching through QML Profiler event notes
  • Using 64bit Android tool chains
  • Using generic projects for bare metal development
  • Highlighting of parenthesis in generic highlighters

See the change log for more.

You find the opensource version on the Qt download page, and Enterprise packages on the Qt Account Portal. Please post issues in our bug tracker. You also can find us on IRC on #qt-creator on irc.freenode.net, and on the Qt Creator mailing list.
