    Sadly there is no QML compiler in the LGPL version of Qt. Instead they have introduced a "QML cache". But the compiiler produces faster code, startup times of QML applications are reduced, QML code can be obfuscated and QML files can be embedded inside the executable through a resource file. It would be a great addition to the LGPL version of Qt.

      If you are obfuscating code that would imply closed source, so why would you not buy a commercial license.

        Any idea if they'll ever support OpenGL and OpenGL ES side by side, just now you have to pick one of the other at compile time, which is a bit annoying

          It works side by side on Windows. I assume you mean on Linux?

          Edit: Note if your GL driver support GL_ES2_compatibility_ARB then you can use ES2 even with desktop OpenGL drivers. This is pretty much the case for all Linux drivers, at least all the ones that have both desktop GL and ES2 drivers.

            Qt Speech looks really interesting, I wonder how it compares to other TTS libraries.

              It doesn't, it is a higher-level wrapper that lets you use the same API across multiple platforms.
