Qt 5.6 cozies up to Yocto Project and adds LTS

Filed under
Development

Qt v5.6 is Qt’s first “LTS” release since 2011, offers tighter alignment with Yocto Project, and is said to make “Boot to Qt” stack customization easier.

The Qt Company released version 5.6 of its cross-platform application and UI development framework, bringing Qt’s “Boot to Qt” embedded Linux platform in greater alignment with Yocto Project tools. As a result, “developers can easily pull in the full Qt offering to their own Yocto-based software stacks or customize Qt’s Yocto-compliant software stack to meet their production needs,” says the Qt Company.
