The latest developer toolkit Qt 5.6.1 LTS Release is now available for general use. The version is part of the commitment to Long Term Support which makes this version more of a bug fix rather than a feature update release.
Qt started the Long Term Support track with the release of the Qt 5.6 series back in March 2016.
Qt is a cross-platform framework written in C++ and used for developing applications across different architectures and operating systems. This software can be compiled from a code base that needs little or no change to source code. It supports cross compiling as well. Qt is available on an open source license as well as a commercial license option.
Qt 5.6.1 LTS Release Highlights
