Porting Qt4 + QtMobility -> Qt5 + QtBluetooth

  • So ive been bashing my head against the wall trying to figure out how Qt5 handles bluetooth. In Qt4 you would install Qt mobility and use the bluetooth API in Qt Connectivity.

    In Qt5 there is listed an Add-On module for Qt Bluetooth but as far as i can tell its not included in the Qt5 Binary nor can i find where the add-on module is.

    Im assuming installing Qt mobility 1.2.2 with the Qt5 binary wont work since Qt5 has moved some functionality to Qt5 which used to be in Qt mobility so they would conflict.

    In fact most of the Add-On modules (like Qt3D) dont seem to be in the 5.0 binary ... or maybe i just dont know how to enable them ...

    You guys are awesome!

    Long live Qt!

    Unfortunately, some modules either lost their maintainers, or their quality was not up to scratch, so they were excluded from the Qt 5.0.0 release. Qt Bluetooth did not make the cut, and its code base still requires lots of cleaning up.

    The plan is to include those modules when they are ready though.

    Here's a list of modules currently accepted in Qt 5.0.0: http://blog.qt.digia.com/blog/2012/11/13/qt-5-0-beta-2-is-out/

  • Thanks for the quick replay. Ill stick with qt 4.8 + qtmobility for now :-)
