For the past 20 years, Qt has kept pace with market demands for user interface creation that brings you everything you need to create the best possible user experiences for your end users, be it classic desktop look-and-feel, modern touch-based embedded screens, or personalized mobile applications.
A fully configurable renderer with performance worthy of modern hardware. It’s flexible and extensible — no need for ugly hacks — allowing for quick implementation of any rendering pipeline you might need. Qt3D provides a generic framework for near-realtime simulations beyond rendering. Developed together with the Qt Service Partner KDAB.
To give you even more out-of-the-box, we’ve created a new set of UI controls for easily creating modern device user experiences. Qt Quick Controls 2.0 gives you light-weight customizable UI controls plus templates for creating your own.
Rapid prototyping and design on any platform with Qt Quick declarative UI technology and the Qt Quick Designer. With productive, professional tooling easily create stunning UIs without loss to native performance — and run them just about everywhere without rewriting.
The core of Qt comes from its C++ foundation and the powerful native performance it offers you. We not only continue to support C++11 features — but we now also leverage C++11 features within the Qt framework libraries themselves — ensuring Qt is on top of the latest C++ developments, so that the framework continues to grow with your needs.
Focus on the content of your application instead of managing the workflow. Usage rights are the same be it commercial or open source. Improved declarative design integrations.
New integrations and styling improve your embedded development workflow and accelerates your time-to-market.
Qt 5.7 is the first release where we have unified the structure of Qt for Application Development for both commercial and open-source users — you get the same features for commercial and open source.
Previously commercial-only features are now also available for open source usage under the GPLv3 license. If you choose to use Qt under open source licensing, please be sure that you understand the obligations of the (L)GPL — before you start development.
