Digia Qt: Qt 5.2 Reaches 500,000 Downloads in Record Time

Digia has announced that the Qt cross-platform application and user interface (UI) development framework has exceeded 500,000 downloads since the launch of version 5.2 in mid-December 2013. The rate of uptake exceeds all previous Qt introductions and underlines the framework’s arrival as a significant player for mobile app development as well as for desktop and embedded platforms. Qt 5.2 extended full support to Android and iOS in addition to 12 other operating systems.

Tommi Laitinen, Digia Qt Senior VP International Products, commented: “Qt has a large and enthusiastic user community of developers who are passionate about the framework and the stunning applications it enables them to develop on desktop and embedded platforms. Now Android and iOS developers are experiencing the same buzz about what Qt can do for them. This has driven the average download rate beyond 10,000 per day and positions Qt to become a major player in mobile and tablet app development. This tremendous uptake of Qt in 2013 and the release of Qt 5.2 has clearly solidified our developer community, which is now larger than ever.”

Interest in Qt 5.2 has been spread globally with the highest download rates occurring in US, China and Europe. Qt 5.2’s support for an extensive range of desktop, mobile and embedded operating system platforms, together with its enhanced core performance and functionality, make it the only cross-platform development framework to enable intuitive and highly performing platform-independent software applications no matter the target device or screen size.

Digia is hosting a series of roadshows for developers of mobile apps, starting in San Francisco, CA, on February 19 and then moving to UK and Germany in March.
