Qt Qt 5.1 has been released. It brings several enhancements, Qt Quick Controls, Qt Sensors, a much better C++11, Wayland and OpenGL support, and the development of Android and iOS applications is very usable for a large number of use cases. In related news, the LXDE desktop prepares the change to Qt.

Ok, so LXDE and Ubuntu just confirms wwhat I said since 13 years ago: Qt is the best toolkit out there.

It's just a shame people doesn't use it more on Windows, too. Only WPF is comparable somehow but WPF is C# and managed .net and can't be used from regular C++. MFC is just crap.
