Touch support in Qt 4.7

May 10, 2010, 14:34 (2 Talkback[s])

"Almost two months after the technical preview was released, the development of version 4.7 of the cross-platform Qt C++ framework for GUI applications is beginning to take shape, as Nokia has now presented a beta version. A beta of the Qt Creator 2.0 development environment, which is part of the framework, has also been released. The developers highlight the integration of Qt Quick (Qt UI Creation Kit) as the prominent feature of the next version of Qt. Qt Quick is a tool collection for creating animated, touch-enabled Qt interfaces and applications for mobile and embedded devices.

"Among other things, Qt Quick allows user interfaces to be programmed in the Qt Markup Language (QML), which is similar to CSS and JavaScript. This language is designed to simplify the creation of modern user interfaces and make Qt available to a larger community of developers and designers. The software package also contains QtDeclarative, a C++ library for writing dynamic and custom interfaces."
