This week, together with the Qt Project, Digia released version 4.8.3 of Qt Commercial. Developed together with Wind River, it now includes official support for VxWorks, Wind River's leading real-time operating system found in about one billion devices spanning a wide range of industries — and can also be found in outer space!
Qt is an excellent tool to create interactive and dynamic user interfaces for VxWorks and the combination of an officially supported platform for commercial Qt licensees is a big step in the evolution of the product. Many of the improvements are also made available to open-source Qt users, though VxWorks itself is not available under an open-source license.
