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

1) it's pure and simple c++


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.

If you're so dead set against using tools why don't you program in assembler?

Is there any Decent and modern gui toolkit that does not use external tools to create boilerplate code?

Seriously what is the point? Boilerplate code is always the same.

I use tools, but I don't want to use more tools than what is actually required. The MOC is not really necessary in order to have signals and slots: any other signals and slots system does not use an external tool.

Nope. That's what I said.
