Qt Visual Studio Tools 2.6 Released

We are happy to announce the release of the Qt Visual Studio Tools version 2.6.0. Installation packages are now available at the Visual Studio Marketplace.

Version 2.6 adds support for multi-platform Qt development with Visual Studio / MSBuild C++ projects through the Linux development VS workload. This makes it possible to build Qt projects in Visual Studio using a cross-compiler hosted remotely (or on a local WSL instance).

Creating a multi-platform Qt Quick project in VS

You can track work progress and provide feedback at bugreports.qt.io. Please feel free to report any problems, or make any suggestions/comments and help us further improve the Qt Visual Studio Tools.

We'll be following up soon with an extensive post detailing how to develop in Visual Studio a multi-platform Qt Quick application targeting Embedded Linux devices. We will describe all steps of the development process, starting from scratch with the creation of a new multi-platform Qt Quick project in Visual Studio, to cross-compilation, deployment and remote debugging.

Stay tuned!
