Qt Speech (Text to Speech) is here

January 25, 2017 in C++, News, Programming, Programming Languages, Qt by admin

via Qt blog:

“I’m happy that with Qt 5.8.0 we’ll have Qt Speech added as a new tech preview module. It took a while to get it in shape since the poor thing sometimes did not get the attention it deserved. We had trouble with some Android builds before that backend received proper care. Luckily there’s always the great Qt community to help out.

What’s in the package? Text to speech, that’s about it. The module is rather small, it abstracts away different platform backends to let you (or rather your apps) say smart things. In the screen shot you see that speech dispatcher on Linux does not care much about gender, that’s platform dependent and we do our best to give you access to the different voices and information about them.”

Native Android style in Qt 5.4

December 6, 2014 in C++, News, Programming, Qt by admin


As you might have heard, the upcoming Qt 5.4 release delivers a new Android style. This blog post explains what it means in practice for different types of Qt applications.

Qt Widgets

Earlier it has been possible to get native looks for Qt Widgets applications on Android with the help of Ministro, a system wide Qt libraries installer/provider for Android. In Qt 5.4, selected parts of Ministro source code have been incorporated into the Android platform plugin of Qt. This makes it possible for Qt applications to look native without Ministro, even though applications wishing to use services provided by Ministro will continue to do so. In other words, Qt Widgets applications will look native regardless of the deployment method; system wide or bundled Qt libraries. Read the rest of this entry →

Qt Creator 2.7.0 RC released

March 7, 2013 in News by admin

Quoting from

Today we published the Qt Creator 2.7.0 release candidate. Since the set of features is the same as for the beta release of course, I’ll just point you to the blog post by André about that, who summarized it quite nicely.  But of course we sat down and fixed lots of bugs, summing up to a total of 490 changes. Thanks to all who helped by testing, reporting bugs, debugging and actually fixing!

Just to mention a few things: There were lots of fixes to the C++ code model again,  with one fix that almost is a sneaked in feature: The C++ quick fix “Add Definition” now also works for non-member functions. Android support got some polish, like fixing kits when the used NDK changes. The kits received some more love in general, with around 30 fixes alone in the area of tool chains, Qt versions, devices and kit setup. On the debugger front, it’s for example now possible to use mini dumps on Windows. And Leena fixed the documentation all over the place, as always many thanks to her!

Users of the open source version of Qt Creator should jump over to the Qt Project downloads page, commercial customers find their packages in the Customer Portal.

Important note for developers for Madde: Madde support has been disabled by default in Qt Creator 2.7. If you still want to use it, you need to enable it, first run Qt Creator with command line argument “-load Madde” (that is important, otherwise you will lose existing Madde settings like tool chains and Qt versions), then open Help > About Plugins and enable the Madde plugin.

Qt 5 Port to Windows Runtime kick-started

February 15, 2013 in News by admin


With Windows 8, Microsoft introduced a new platform, the Windows Runtime. On the desktop, the operating system provides 2 modes:

Classic mode: This mode shows the familiar Windows desktop known from Windows 7 (with the exception of the start menu), in which traditional applications using the Win32 API run. No modifications are required for Qt 4 or Qt 5-based applications to run in this mode.

Modern UI (formerly known as Metro mode): This is a new type of user interface intended for tablet and phone UIs on which Windows Store Apps run. These applications use a new API called Windows Runtime, which is based on the Component Object Model (COM). A similar API exists on Windows Phone 8.

Research work on how to port Qt 5 to use Windows Runtime was started by Andrew Knight from Digia and is visible in the winrt branch of the qtbase repository. Recently, further contributions by Kamil Trzciński were added to it (check out his blog). Now, with Qt 5.0 out of the door, we would like to kick off this platform port. This completes our cross-platform offering in addition to the ports for the widely used Android and iOS platforms.
