Qt Nokia has released the latest version of its cross-platform toolkit Qt, version 4.6. As usual, it comes with a whole slew of improvements and new features, and this time, they even added a new platform into the mix.

Too bad QML wasn't ready yet for this release. When they finish it we will have a killer tool for developing more interactive user interfaces. Hell, even designers can program in QML ;)

My (quite limited) experience with QML is that it's easier to get blingy UI's (with lots of animations etc), but for doing simple things just using Qt "normally" (C++/python, QWidgets, normal layouts...) is much easier.

This is because QML provides a lower level access to the dynamic state of the UI, whereas with the classical Qt style you can just slap an UI together with a Qt Designer. The UI won't be quite as appealing, though.

Of course we are still to see how the UI designer for QML will be like; it might be as easy as using Qt Designer currently is.
