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

"[q] It's not. The Signals And Slots mechanism requires the MOC.
that is in turn pure c++ now one can debate if auto generated code is a good thing or not, but if you open a moc file you'll find nothing but perfectly valid c++ " You didn't get it. Qt is not pure C++ because it requires an external tool other than the compiler itself. [/q]
Since you are not requred to use MOC to utilize the Qt libraries, it's by your own reasoning pure C++. Since nothing stops you from manually write the pure C++ code that MOC generates, rather than having MOC generate it for you. That it would be a totally stupid and pointless thing to do, is another issue altogheter. Much like arguing against Qt on grounds of it not being "pure" C++.
