BW: Trolltech Announces the Release of Qt 2.2 and Qt Designer

“Trolltech announced today the release of Qt version 2.2. Qt is
a cross-platform C++ graphical user interface application framework
that provides users a software development environment to produce
commercial-grade, multi-platform software. Qt currently supports
Windows, Linux, Unix and Embedded Linux. Also released today was Qt
Designer, a Rapid Application Development (RAD) tool that provides
a graphical interface to the Qt Application Programming Interface
(API).”

“Version 2.2 adds several great new features to Qt version
2.1.1, including Internet programming, Microsoft Windows 2000
compliant look and feel, highly optimized 2D graphics
visualization, XML parser with SAX interface, advanced support for
multithreaded applications, Table/Spreadsheet programming and the
new class QAction (a user interface action that can appear both in
menus and tool bars). Despite the new features, Qt 2.2 will
maintain both source and binary compatibility with Qt 2.0 and Qt
2.1.”

We are very proud of this new release. It contains many new
features that our customers have requested,” said Eirik Aavitsland,
Qt product manager. “With the introduction of our visual GUI
builder (Qt Designer), Qt has taken a great step forward in
usability and accessibility to programmers.
