Qt After many months of designing, coding, reviewing, testing and documenting, Qt 4.7.0 is finally ready for the big time. Although it's a little more than nine months since Qt's last feature release (4.6.0 on December 1, 2009), the seeds of some of the new stuff in 4.7 were sown much earlier. Indeed, many of the ideas behind the biggest new feature in Qt 4.7.0, Qt Quick, were born more than two years ago, not long after Qt 4.4 was released

QT Quick, as I understand it, intends to make non-programmer user interface specialists first-class citizens of the development team.


I think the more important goal is that QML allows your UI to kick ass.

It's very easy to create a UI with the "old" stuff (QWidgets - basically the same as visual basic/winforms/delphi/whatever), but doing something "impressive" in terms of glorious animations is hard. QML makes it easy.

Problem with QML has been that a graphical designer has been necessary to get stuff done. The answer to this is "Qt Components":
