Qt Trolltech has unleashed a Windows CE version of Qt, its cross-platform application development framework. Qt/WinCE, made available today as a downloadable technology preview, is scheduled to see its final release 'late in Q1 2008', the company said. Qt is an application development framework aimed at enabling developers to compile binaries for Windows, Mac, and Linux OSes from a single code base. Qt's API (application programming interface) comprises some 400 C++ class libraries, Trolltech says.

I know. I just wish it was three years ago, because I had a QT application that I had to port to Windows Mobile and in the end I had to use .NET

This could be very useful for us in the future. Also, some more teasers about future Qt features are mentioned on Aaron's blog: http://aseigo.blogspot.com/2007/10/qt-roadmap.html

Qt is simply amazing. If you're developing C++ apps there is nothing that comes even remotely close.

> If you're developing C++ apps

to be fair, it's not just C++ these days either. Jambi is an officially supported product/project of Trolltech's, and we have Pything, Ruby and C# bindings for Qt4 managed by the community.

more platforms, more languages, more yummy goodness.

I've been programming C++ for years, and when I started using Qt a few months ago, it totally changed my views on programming. My hat's off to Trolltech for supporting both commercial and OSS.

BTW, 4.3.2 just came out the other day. With this version they released the restriction to MingW32 compilers for OSS projects on Windows!

Are there any good bindings for Common Lisp

Does anyone knows of good Common Lisp bindings for Qt?

I have XDA Pro, and I've got only OpenLisp, and some old port of GCL running on it. They both have a problem with the way the console window is made (it clears once it goes down). I was thinking trying to get CLISP or ECL (might be easier) running on it, but couldn't find any suitable library for the console window, graphics, etc.

Qt might be a good bet.

I've downloaded the preliminary commercial version.
I've installed it in D:QTCE
I have MSVC2005 installed with SP1 and having paths to CL (LIB and INCLUDE environment variables are set-up).

I've started configure.exe, it finished okay,
then started nmake and it failed, missing probably for the ZLIB library (looking at the names)

qxml.cpp
