Qt Since Nokia announced its switch to Windows Phone 7, people have been worried about the future of Qt. Well, it turns out Nokia is still going full steam ahead with Qt, since it has just announced the plans for Qt 5. Some major changes are afoot code and functionality-wise, but the biggest change is that Qt 5 will be developed out in the open from day one (unlike Qt 4). There will be no distinction between a Nokia developer or third party developer.

you could try the Java QT binding (QTJambi) suppose to be pretty good and both Java and Mono are pretty similar languages.

But, the whole application is written in C#. What good is Qt bindings for Java when the language is C#? :S

The Java Jambi binding is dead anyway. I think KDE have a working C# binding (SMOKE / qyoto), but I have never heard anyone using it so I cant tell. If KDE have one, then Qt will work as well.

The package for Qt bindings for C# is called Qyoto:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qt_%28framework%29#Bindings

http://techbase.kde.org/Development/Languages/Qyoto

Qyoto makes it possible to develop Qt and KDE applications using C#, or any other .NET language. Qyoto uses SMOKE, and offers access to almost all Qt and KDE classes.


AFAIK you do not need to have Mono installed.

Pre-built binary packages are available in the following distributions:

Debian
Ubuntu
Arch Linux
