Qt Creator 4.5 Open-Source IDE Improves Android and CMake Support

Available for GNU/Linux, macOS, and Microsoft Windows platforms, the Qt Creator 4.5 release comes three months after the previous version to add a new UI tool that lets you manage Android SDK packages, as well as to offer better information about various issues with the installed Android SDK, including warnings about missing components or the minimum version of requirements. Starting with Qt Creator 4.5, local deployments and Ant are no longer supported by the application as they’ve been deprecated for some time now.

On the other hand, the CMake support was improved with grouping of variables by prefix in the configuration UI in the Projects mode, handling of external configuration changes, and the ability to change variables’ type or unset those added by mistake.
