Qt 5.9 Launches as Long-Term Supported Release with C++11 Compliant Compiler
Qt Project’s Lars Knoll was happy to announce today, May 31, 2017, the release and immediate availability for download of Qt 5.9.0 stable and long-term supported (LTS) series of the open-source and cross-platform application framework.
Qt 5.9 entered development in early February and received its first Beta milestone in the first week of April, giving us an early taste of what to expect from this new point release of the Qt 5 series. But, today, we can finally enjoy all the new features implemented during the Qt 5.9 development cycle by grabbing the final release.
“With Qt 5.9, we have had a strong focus on performance and stability. We’ve fixed a large number of bugs all across Qt, and we have done a lot of work to improve our continuous integration system. This will make it a lot easier for us to create new releases (both patch level and minor releases) from 5.9 onward,” said Lars Knoll.
