Note that this list should be considered as work in progress until the first Beta release.

New Features (within existing modules)

  • Qt 3D
    • Improved profiling and troubleshooting support
    • QSortPolicy add Uniform mode to control whether uniform minification needs to be performed or not
    • QMouseDevice add updateAxesContinuously property
    • OpenGL Renderer is now isolated as a plugin
  • Qt Bluetooth
  • Qt Core
    • QFile::moveToTrash provides a cross platform API for moving files to the trash/recycling bin on Windows, macOS, and Linux desktop (implementing the freedesktop.org specification).
    • QFileInfo::isJunction reports whether a file system entry is a Windows NTFS junction
  • Qt GUI
  • Qt Location
  • Qt Multimedia
  • Qt Multimedia Widgets
  • Qt Network
  • Qt QML
  • Qt Quick
    • Added a PathText type, which can be used together with Qt Quick Shapes to render text as geometry and not based on distance fields or pre-rendered textures. This can be useful for rendering large font sizes which would otherwise consume a lot of texture memory.
    • Added Image.sourceClipRect to specify a clipping region, to request the image plugin to render a portion of an image source.
    • Added cursorShape property to pointer handlers. Most pointer handlers (e.g. DragHandler) will change the cursor when the active state is true. HoverHandler will change it when the mouse is hovering over the Item that contains the HoverHandler.
  • Qt Quick Controls 2
  • Qt SerialBus
  • Qt Test
  • Qt Wayland Compositor
  • Qt WebEngine
  • Qt WebSockets
  • Qt Widgets
  • QDoc
    • QDoc can now generate DocBook.
    • QDoc now generates output for C++ class and function template parameters.
    • QDoc now generates correct output for scoped enums (enum classes).

  • Android
  • iOS
  • Wayland
