Release candidate lands for Qt 5.0
Lars Knoll, Qt Chief architect at Digia, has announced that a release candidate for Qt 5.0 is now available and that the company hopes to release the new version of the C++ framework for cross platform application development within a week. Knoll reports "tremendous progress" in the four weeks since the release of the second beta of Qt, with hundreds of bugs fixed. He also pointed to the newly restructured documentation which should make switching to the new release easier.
The Qt 5.0 release candidate is available to download as libraries for Windows, 32- and 64-bit Linux, and Mac OS X, or as source code. The LGPL licensed code is, of course, also available from the Qt Project's repository.
