Software update: Qt 5.12.1




Qt version 5.12.1 LTS was released earlier this month. The name is pronounced cute and it is an open source and platform independent environment with which applications and graphical user interfaces can be developed. It is used in Google Earth, KDE, Opera, Skype, VLC Media Player and VirtualBox. The announcement of this issue is as follows:

Qt 5.12.1 Released

I am pleased to announce that Qt 5.12.1 has been released today. The first patch release in the Qt 5.12 LTS series provides a large number of bug fixes and other improvements.

Compared to Qt 5.12.0, the new Qt 5.12.1 contains nearly 300 bug fixes. For details of the most important changes, please check the Change files of Qt 5.12.1.

Qt 5.12 LTS will receive multiple patch releases throughout the coming 3 years and we recommend all active developed projects to migrate to Qt 5.12 LTS. Qt 5.9 LTS is currently in ‘Strict’ and is currently receiving all the bug fixes. With Qt 5.6 Support ending in March 2019 all active projects still using Qt 5.6 LTS should now migrate to a later version of Qt.

Qt 5.12.1 can be updated with the maintenance tool of the online installer. For new installations, please download latest online installer from Qt Account portal or from Download page. Offline packages are available for commercial users in the Qt Account portal and at the Download page for open-source users. You can also try the commercial evaluation option from the Download page.
