Today we have released Qt 5.3.2, the second patch update to Qt 5.3. In addition to improvements and fixes to Qt functionality it also packs Qt Creator 3.2.1 along with nice additions and patches to Qt Quick Compiler, Qt Quick Enterprise Controls and Qt Purchasing.
Also, with Qt 5.3.2 we are extremely proud of rolling out the new licensing tiers, now including the much-desired Indie Mobile tier. See the blog post about all the new announcements, and visit the new Qt download page for your copy of Qt 5.3.2!
With Qt 5.3.2 we are providing nice set of bug fixes and enhancements thanks to all the feedback and reports we’ve received! Qt 5.3.2 maintains backward and forward compatibility, both source and binary, with Qt 5.3.0 and the latest, 5.3.1, which was released this June. The list of changes can be found from the change files for each module.
The packages of Qt 5.3.2 also include new Qt Creator patch release, Qt Creator 3.2.1. See the blog post about Qt Creator 3.2.1 for details.
We are also releasing nice updates to a bunch of add-on modules for commercial Qt licensees, all installable through your Qt online installer. The new and exciting Qt Quick Compiler gets its first update and we are adding the long-awaited Tumbler control to Qt Quick Enterprise Controls! Here’s the overview of updates to Add-On modules:
Qt Quick Compiler 1.1
The Qt Quick Compiler, which was introduced with Qt 5.3.1, allows you to compile your otherwise-dynamically-loaded QML files into native code reducing load-time, preventing reverse engineering and enhancing performance on non-JITting platforms. In this release we have fixed important bugs and added initial support for projects built with CMake.
Qt Quick Enterprise Controls 1.2
Finally, the Tumbler is here! The Tumbler control is well-known in mobile user interfaces and much used in all kinds of touch-based devices. Now you no longer need to fiddle around manually with PathView & friends (as fun as it is, though!), but you can just take the Tumbler control and customize it into your needs!
With the 1.2 release, we are also improving the existing set of industrial UI controls. See the documentation for full list of pre-made controls.
Qt Purchasing 1.0.1
The Purchasing module that gives you a convenient cross-platform in-app purchasing API is also getting a patch to improve functionality on iOS. For details of usage, see the documentation.
You Got Me at Qt 5.3.2, Where Can I Get All This?
We’ve now greatly simplified the download process with the new unified Qt.io pages. Visit the new downloads page to pick up the right version for you. You can also use the package maintainer of your existing Qt online installer to roll the updates, or existing licensees can pick up installers directly from Qt Account.
