Digia has officially released the Qt 5.0 tool-kit.

With Christmas coming up quickly, Lars Knoll wrote a holiday-themed release announcement on the Qt Blog to celebrate the long-awaited release of Qt 5.0. "Qt 5.0 is a major overhaul over the Qt 4.x series that have been around since 2005. We have invested lots of time and effort to make Qt fit for the future. Qt 5.0 comes as a full SDK package with binaries for Linux (64 and 32 bit), Mac OS X (10.7 and 10.8) and Windows. This implies that in addition to the Qt 5 frameworks, the packages come with Qt Creator 2.6, examples and full documentation."

In terms of Qt going forward, "There are a few things we’re still working on for the 5.0 series. We have bugs that we want to fix. We currently do not have binary packages for MinGW (as WebKit doesn’t yet work with it yet) and MSVC 2012 (you’ll need to compile from source), and we’ll work on delivering these as soon as possible. The current plan is to have a first patch level release, 5.0.1, some time before the end of January. We’ll then be aiming for a Qt 5.1 release some time in Spring 2013, where we’ll mainly focus on stability and bringing modules such as Qt 3D and Qt Sensors into the Qt 5 base distribution. We also hope to be able to show some preview releases of the Qt ports for Android and iOS within the same time frame."
