Qt 4.8.0 Released with Threaded OpenGL

Dec 15, 2011

Qt is a popular C++ programming framework and version 4.8.0 has just been released. Threaded OpenGL support enables those of us that are not OpenGL-ninjas to render OpenGL from more than one thread concurrently. Qt Platform Abstraction (QPA) restructures the GUI stack to enable easier porting of Qt to different windowing systems and devices. HTTP requests are now handled in a separate thread by default. The file system stack received some heavy lifting under the hood. The result is better I/O performance.
