    Default Qt 5.0 Is Using More C++11 Features

    Phoronix: Qt 5.0 Is Using More C++11 Features

    The Qt 5.0 tool-kit is beginning to take greater advantage of the C++11 programming language update...

    To be pedantic - it's support for explicit virtual function override. The keyword here is literally "override" (as in it's a C++11 keyword).

    There's a poll, asking people what they consider important for Qt 5. C++ and desktop integration, contrary to the developers saying that "people aren't interested in that, everybody wants javascript", are very important :-)

    Hmm...

    This new constexpr C++11 keyword can be added to annotate some inline functions to specify that they could be computed at compile time. In Qt 5, we introduced Q_DECL_CONSTEXPR which is defined to constexpr when the compiler supports it, or nothing otherwise.
    Why the weirdness? Why not define constexpr to nothing when the compiler doesn't support it, and not define it at all when there's support? Would have been much better design.

    I've been using Qt years, and not even Nokia taking ownership of Qt from TrollTech, has caused as much as a backlash as all this QML bollocks. To be fair Nokia's profile has really raised Qt's, but the mobile phone influence has been.. Misapplied.
