I am pleased to announce that we released the first beta of Qt 6.1 today. As the first feature update in the Qt 6 series, Qt 6.1 adds some important new functionality and brings support for multiple additional libraries. We will continue to provide subsequent beta releases via the online installer throughout the beta phase.
We have released today Qt 6.0.1, the first patch release to Qt 6.0 series. As a patch release, Qt 6.0.1 does not add any new functionality but provides bug fixes and other improvements.
With all the fanfare and trumping about Qt 6.0 a small but important part of documentation may have been overlooked: The Qt for Device Creation documentation got a major facelift and reorganization. As part of that we took feedback and needs from our hardware partners and created something that can be described as a Qt Board Support Package, QBSP cookbook.
Special year, special events; Qt is participating at the first-ever Virtual Consumer Electronics Show 2021. You will find the latest news and demos at our virtual exhibitor booth, especially our consumer and automotive industry offering with Qt 6. Virtual CES takes place from 11th to 14th January, 2021 on CES’ website.
It is with great pleasure to announce that we have released a new version of Qt for Python for Qt 6 and a range of new features 🐍. PySide was initially released for Qt 4 and PySide2 for Qt 5.12. We have decided to follow the general Qt release versioning with this release, explaining the version leap to PySide6 and Shiboken6.
I am really excited to announce today’s release of Qt 6.0. It is the first release of a new major version, and marks a major milestone for Qt. We started working on the initial ideas a few years ago, and since then, have put a massive effort into creating the next generation of Qt.
