Qt 4.7.3 and Qt Creator for OS/2 version 2.2.1

September 19, 2011 by

Qt 4.7.3

The latest version is 4.7.3 released on 15.09.2011. This release brings the new functionality provided by the major Qt 4.7 update from Nokia and fixes a number of bugs. This release also includes the QtDeclarative library and the awesome QML framework.

Starting from version 4.7.3, the primary way to distribute and install official binary builds of Qt for OS/2 is RPM. This means that all Qt components are provided as RPM packages which may be installed from either the netlabs RPM repositories using the YUM command or directly using the RPM command (the GUI frontend is on the way). In order to install RPM packages on your machine, you need to install the RPM bootstrap package (once) which contains the RPM installer. The installation of RPM is described in detail at Once you have RPM installed, you may issue one of commands as described on to install various parts of Qt.

Informations about whats changed can be found here:

Qt Creator

On 17.09.2011, Qt Creator for OS/2 version 2.2.1 has been released. This is a first public release of this great tool. Enjoy!

The main way to distribute Qt Creator for OS/2 is through the RPM repositories. If you already have RPM installed, just type:

yum install qtcreator qtcreator-doc 

This will install the latest version of Qt Creator, its documentation and all necessary Qt runtime libraries. Note that the Qt development environment is not automatically installed (because Qt Creator doesn't need it if you want to use it only as a programmer's text editor). If you want to develop Qt applications, you will need to install the necessary parts of this environment with yum (the simplest way is to run yum install qt-devel-kit which will install the complete Qt development environment and all tools).
