QT 5 Beta is now out in the public after it was announced to be in works 15 months ago.
Qt 5 will make it easier and faster to create:
- Smooth, accelerated graphics performance with limited resources. Qt 5 makes better use of the GPU to deliver better performance on inexpensive hardware. For example, using Qt 5 you can achieve 60 fps performance on a $35 single-board computer like Raspberry Pi. – See the Qt on Pi project for more info.
- Powerful apps connected to the web
High-performance Apps and UIs
Qt 5 addresses two core challenges developers face when creating high-performance apps and UIs:
- Better tools to design the UIs and
- Better rendering performance to execute your vision.
Qt 5 is still in beta so remember to check out the known issues page.
