Qt and iOS - Whats the future?

  • I'm really rooting for Qt. I love it so far. I've invested about 7 months into a project using Qt. But I'm having some doubts that I wonder if anyone could help me with.

    I'm concerned that Qt and the iOS are a bit at odds with each other. For instance, Apple just announced iOS 8. Try to find information about how Qt is going to handle the new OS change. I can't find anything. Is Qt planning on supporting Metal (which is Apple's new OpenGL replacement--which is 10x faster than OpenGL)--which is exclusively Apple. Just questions like these bother me that there isn't "buzz" happening around Qt.

    Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

    With my project, I'm at a bit of a cross roads. Its written with Qt at its heart. The hope was to have a nice environment to make a Apple/Android app. But I'm feeling a little hesitant about the direction I'm going in.

    The interest mailing list would be a better place for this kind of question. Especially planning. You'll find there Qt's developers/maintainers. This forum is more user oriented

  • You have posted this answer before. I am unclear where this site is. Could you give me a little more information?
