Nothing new in QtSerialBus in Qt 5.7 despite changelog?

  • I saw the announcement today for Qt v5.7 and it mentioned the following:

    "Finally, Qt 5.7 also includes a technology preview of the new Qt SerialBus module that allows you to use Qt APIs for device bus communications and protocols. It’s a generic API, but with this version it includes implementations for CAN and Modbus."

    But that was already included in v5.6. QtSerialBus module was already introduced, and there already were CAN implementations like SocketCAN and PeakCAN.

    The code changelog doesn't offer more information.

    Am I misunderstanding? Has something been added since v5.6?

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    That's a question you should rather bring to the interest mailing list. You'll find there Qt's developers/maintainers. This forum is more user oriented.

  • Thank you, I'll do that.
