Qt Creator 4.10.0 released - New features added

We are happy to announce the release of Qt Creator 4.10.0!


You can "pin" files now. Pinned files stay open when bulk-closing files for example via
File > Close All and File > Close All Files in Project. They also stay on top in the Open Documents pane and in the document dropdown in the editor toolbar. The pin functionality is available via the context menu on the document dropdown and the Open Documents pane.

Our client for the Language Server Protocol is now better integrated into Locator: It shows symbols from the current document '.', from the workspace ':', and classes 'c' and functions 'm'. If the server provides a tool tip for a code location, the client shows it in the editor. In the server settings you can specify that it should only be started when needed, and you can use variables for the server executable and arguments.
We also moved the plugin out of experimental state, so it is enabled by default.

We fixed many issues with the reformatting feature of QML files, which could lead to invalid code.


We added support for Android targets to CMake and Qbs projects.

For CMake we removed the Default build target, which was usually not doing anything expected. You can build single files with CMake projects via Build > Build File or via the project tree's context menu now.

The Qt Widgets Application and C++ Library wizards finally give you a build system choice as well.

Other improvements

You can filter many of the output panes for lines matching an expression now. For remote Linux targets you can optionally deploy all files that are installed by your build system’s install step. We added basic support for Boost tests.

This is just a small excerpt of the full list of changes. Have a look at our change log for a more complete list.
