Qt Creator 14 Beta released

We are happy to announce the release of Qt Creator 14 Beta!

For a more detailed overview of what is new and improved in Qt Creator 14, please head over to our change log. Here are some examples:


  • We started work on supporting Lua based plugins (registering language servers, actions, preferences, and wizards).

Projects / Sessions

  • We added File > Open Workspace for opening a directory as a project. A project file .qtcreator/project.json in the directory is used to set a name and file exclusion filters.
  • You can switch between hiding and showing the disabled kits for your project in Projects mode now.
  • The options for advanced search and for searching in documents  are now saved in the session.
  • We made C++ code model settings and the CMake settings configurable per project.
  • You can configure CMake settings and debuggers directly from CMake Presets now.


  • We added various C++ refactoring actions, "Convert Function Call to Qt Meta-Method Invocation", "Move Class to a Dedicated Set of Source Files", and "Re-order Member Function Definitions According to Declaration Order", increased the availability of the "Add Curly Braces" refactoring, and fixed issues with C++ macros.
  • We improved support for QML enums.
  • The QML language server is now the default backend for the QML code model.

We also improved the performance of C++ debugging, fixed issues with dark system themes on Linux, and made lots of other improvements

Known issue: QTBUG-126275 on Linux/Wayland in some configurations. The workaround is to start Qt Creator with the environment variable QT_QPA_PLATFORM=xcb set.
