on Wednesday released Qt v3.2, the latest update to the company’s C++ application framework. Designed to run on multiple platforms, Qt makes it possible to create a single codebase that can be recompiled on Windows, Linux/Unix and Mac OS X.
New features in Qt v.32 include hundreds of enhancements and changes, according to the developers. Most notably, SQL support has been improved with drivers for IBM’s DB2 environment, with complete support for stored procedures and improved connection parameters; Indic script input and rendering has been added as well.
What’s more, the font rendering engine has been completely rewritten for this release and is faster than before. Qt Designer now incorporates a visual menu editor and enhances support for adding custom container widgets. ActiveQt support has been improved in Qt Designer as well.
There are many other changes, too. For complete details or to download the new version, visit the Trolltech Web site.
