How install Qt 5.7.0 released on Ubuntu

 Qt is a cross-platform application framework that is widely used for developing application software that can be run on various software and hardware platforms with little or no change in the underlying codebase, while still being a native application with the capabilities and speed thereof.


New Features in Qt 5.7.0

Qt 3D Module
  •     Added support for Compute Shaders on supported hardware.
  •     Added support for loading multi-image DDS and KTX textures including cubemaps, mip chains, and array textures.
  •     Improved support for compressed texture formats.
  •     Made Render surface explicit.
  •     Extended Input API and support for device plugins.
  •     Improved picking support.

Qt Core Module
  •     Added qAsConst function to help using non-const Qt containers in C++11 range for loops.
  •     Enabled Qt event dispatchers to use the poll() function on Unix now, making it possible for applications to have file descriptors greater than 1024.
  •     Added support for converting a floating point to its shortest and exact string form, without having to pre-calculate the number of digits.
  •     Improved C++11 support by using std::atomic as backend for QAtomic classes and adding QTypeInfo for char16_t and char32_t.
  •     Added QIODevice support for multi-streaming.
  •     Enabled QPluginLoader to work even if QT_NO_LIBRARY is set (for example, linking against a static libc).
