In addition to today marking the release of Qt 6.5 LTS, Slint 1.0 has been released as a Rust-focused graphical toolkit that also supports bindings for other programming languages. Slint aims to deliver efficient and fluid GUIs from embedded to desktop and features its own markup language.

Slint is the project previously known as the SixtyFPS toolkit focused on providing a fluid GUI toolkit with an emphasis on Rust language support. Slint's goals remain around being scalable, lightweight, intuitive, and offering native application support across platforms.

Slint 1.0 is implemented in Rust and represents three years of work by around fifty developers.
