We believe that to execute successful multi-screen and Internet of Things strategies you need a cross-platform framework that reaches all major desktop, embedded and mobile platforms, while also giving your customers an incomparable user experience.
You can use Qt to easily create connected devices and applications with beautiful UIs, native C++ performance and integrated cloud services. Qt 5.4 makes this even easier by bringing you a more powerful web offering, the final port of Qt for WinRT and features improvements everywhere.
With the importance of HTML5 growing, we want to provide you the ultimate support for hybrid application development by giving you access to the entire web platform. On desktop and embedded platforms, we introduce full support for our Chromium-based Qt WebEngine.
For mobile platforms, you can use the new Qt WebView to integrate web content using the native OS browser engine.
NOTE: Qt 5.4 is the last release that will include WebKit support. In our subsequent release, it will be deprecated and therefore, we advise that already now, all new projects that need web capabilities, are developed with Qt WebEngine.
With Qt, your users can access your apps on all their devices.
You can create Qt cross-platform consumer apps, go mobile with your desktop application, or create a mobile client for your embedded device.
Qt 5.4 brings your users an improved user experience:
– Android apps using Qt Quick Controls get the native look-and-feel.
– iOS 8 and Xcode 6 compliance improvement.
We’ve expanded your market reach. Your users can now run your apps on all their latest Windows devices. We now offer full support for Windows Store Apps allowing you to reach Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows RT tablet users.

Rely on the power of Qt to build great looking and highly performant devices:
Qt ships with the Qt Creator IDE, which is a full cross-platform development environment for Qt applications giving you seamless workflow from UI design and code development to direct device deployment and on-device debugging and profiling.
Qt Creator 3.3 introduces an improved Qt Quick Designer that gives you an integrated drag’n’drop UI layout editor for Qt Quick UIs. The UI logic is separated from the UI layout making the workflow easier by separating generated code from written code.
Qt 5.4 is available under a commercial license, as well as open source LGPL v2.1, GPL v2 and introduces the LGPL v3, with some features only available under a commercial license and the GPL v2 and/or LGPL v3.
The addition of the LGPL v3 protects 3rd party developers’ freedom. It also enables The Qt Company to introduce more value-add components for the whole Qt ecosystem without making compromises on the business side.
