How to restart with Qt after 3 years away?

  • Hi everyone,

    I didn't use Qt4 since about 2-3 years, i was using a single installer including everything (the compiler:MinGW, the SDK , and QtCreator, the documentation also... ) , i want to use it now but i really don't know what to download and install, can you please help me.
    i also want to know why are there 2 versions of Qt at the same time (4.8.5 and 5.2)? and what is the difference between the two?

    Thanks for your time.

  • If you are starting a new project you'd better go download Qt 5.2. Qt 5 brings a lot of new features and puts QML in the center of the development but of course the main concepts are still the same. QtWidgets are also still there.
    A lot of project have not yet migrated to Qt 5 and Qt 4.8.5 is the latest stable release of Qt4.
