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

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


the graphical designer helps but is not necessary, the syntax is really simple.
the problem is that it provides only primitives, so developers would have to write their own "widget set" to be reused (or reuse an already existing one, either QWidget or QGraphicsWidget based, it works just fine)
what qt quick wil do is to provide a basic widget set, written in QML itself and themed with the particular platform style it's running in.
so a layer for the coherency without sacrificing the expressivity.

That's what I meant by requiring a graphics designer - as a developer I can't draw widgets that look tolerable.
