Qt 4.8.0 Released
Qt has reached another important evolutionary milestone today. We are very proud to announce that Qt 4.8.0 has now been released. Many people have worked long and hard to deliver Qt 4.8.0. Today that hard work reaches final release maturity, and we are celebrating!
Featuring Qt Platform Abstraction, threaded OpenGL support, multithreaded HTTP and optimized file system access, Qt 4.8.0 can be downloaded as binary or source packages (Qt Download Page).
Those of you that have been testing and using Qt 4.8 through its earlier stages will know the key benefits it brings. If you haven’t been following it, here are some key features that are new in Qt 4.8.0:
Qt 4.8.0 ships with QtWebKit 2.2.1. More details of the major changes can be found in the Qt 4.8 beta blog post.
The source and binary packages for Qt 4.8.0 can be downloaded from the Qt Download Page. The source code can also be found in the public repository, where the “v4.8.0″ tag matches the released packages. Please note that the documentation has been moved to Qt Developer network, as part of moving Qt to the Qt Project.
Thanks for all the feedback and contributions to Qt 4.8 so far. Further feedback can be provided in the Qt Bug Tracker.
We have started looking into moving Qt 4 to the Qt Project, which will make it simpler for you to contribute changes using Gerrit (the same infrastructure as used for Qt 5 already). This might take some time, but we are eager to see it happen.
According to tradition the announcement of minor releases should contain a picture of the people who has made the release happen.
Thanks to everyone who has contributed. We are looking forward to seeing the great applications you will make.
