Ok, maybe not as exciting as the Android port, but nevertheless – Qt/master now builds and runs [1] on INTEGRITY, a Real-Time Operating System by Green Hills Software. So, if you ever wanted to run your QML app on a ~150 kb micro-kernel, here’s your chance ๐Ÿ™‚

If you happen to be close to Nรผrnberg, come visit us at the embedded world show, where we show a QML app running on INTEGRITY with a decent 40 fps average.

The patches were kindly donated by Rolland Dudemaine, who went as far as implementing a frame buffer and input API in INTEGRITY just for Qt. Many thanks for your contribution, Rolland!

[1] Disclaimer – only the QWS windowing system is currently supported. Some JavaScriptCore patches are still pending for review and are not in Qt/master yet. Contact Rolland if you have commercial interest in running your Qt or Qt Quick application on INTEGRITY.

This is awesome news and very important for many people still! ๐Ÿ™‚

Wow. I haven’t thought about Green Hills since I used their Motorola 68000 compiler in about 1985 or so. Amazing. They are still alive and look to be doing well.

Great!

Although the “Lighthouse”-tag seams wrong ๐Ÿ™‚
Any plans of making a Qt 4.8 Lighthouse port for INTEGRITY?

Harald Fernengel says:

@Thomas: I consider QWS the “stable version of Lighthouse” ๐Ÿ™‚ But yes, I’m sure the patches will be updated once Lighthouse is stable.

@Thomas : Although it isn’t in the public source repository, Lighthouse runs well on INTEGRITY too.
