Qt now has some new and improved communication protocols and interoperability functionalities, which massively enhance connectivity and remote UI and deployment. We're taking our mantra ''Code Less. Create More. Deploy Everywhere.'' to a whole new level with more ways to run Qt apps in web browsers!
Qt for Automation's QtKNX is the smart home library that translates your wishes into the KNX protocol.
Qt KNX is the first major step to bring home automation at the finger tips of Qt users. Multi-platform, elegant, flexible and easy to write software for smart homes will soon be possible. All it takes is the new QtKNX library, and the already existing functionalities of Qt.
WebAssembly is now supported by all major web browsers as a binary format for allowing sand-boxed executable code in web pages that is nearly as fast as native machine code. Qt for WebAssembly makes it possible to run Qt applications on many web browsers, without any download steps or special server requirements (other than serving the wasm file). Check out the examples directly in your browser!
OPC UA is a central element of the Industry 4.0 story providing seamless communication between IT and industrial production systems. The focus of Qt OPC UA is on HMI/application development and ease of use for client-side development. The Tech Preview allows to connect to servers, read and write attributes, call methods on the server, monitor values for data changes and browse nodes. All this functionality is provided by asynchronous APIs which integrate nicely into Qt applications.
