Qt Creator 4.2 Launches with New Qt SCXML Editor Module, Better CMake Support

Qt Creator 4.2 arrives approximately three and a half months after the previous, and also the first, maintenance update in the 4.x stable series. As expected, it’s full of cool features, starting with the brand-new Qt SCXML Editor module that promises to let application developer create state machines from State Chart XML, as well as to embed them into Qt Quick and Qt C++ projects. It can be enabled from Help – About Plugins. Also new in the Qt Creator 4.2 release you’ll find a bunch of useful improvements to the Qt Quick Designer module, among which we can mention a new section for managing the imports and property definitions used for the implementation of C++ backend objects, various font properties of text items, padding support, as well as the ability to edit the “when” condition of states.
