How to install Qt 5.10.0 released on Ubuntu 17.04, 17.10

   Qt is much more than just a cross-platform SDK - it's a technology strategy that lets you quickly and cost-effectively design, develop, deploy, and maintain software while delivering a seamless user experience across all devices.

Qt 3D Studio will work with both Qt 5.9 and 5.10. The runtime and the 3D Studio application are both available under commercial and GPL licensing.

Qt 5.10.0 released Changelog:

Qt Core
  • Added rudimentary implementation of QStringView. It is missing some (important) const-QString functions, but is fully functional as an interface type. To be completed for Qt 5.11.
  • Added many more functions to QLatin1String, too, co-evolving QLatin1String as the const char*-Latin-1-version of QStringView.
  • Added QIODevice::skip() to improve performance in read operations.
  • Explicitly little and big-endian integer types exposed (for instance qint16_le, quint32_be) for machine-independent data-type parsing.
  • Added QRandomGenerator providing a simple API for high-quality (optionally seed-less) random numbers.
  • Added accessors for metadata time fields of files to QFileInfo.
  • Added QSemaphoreReleaser a RAII-style class for QSemaphore.
  • Added QKeyValueIterator for more efficient iteration over keys of an associative container
  • Added cross-platform Vulkan enablers for Windows, Linux (xcb) and Android (level 23+): QVulkanInstance, QWindow with type VulkanSurface, and QVulkanWindow
  • Added new flags and functions to QSurfaceFormat and QOpenGLWidget to request sRGB-capable default/backing framebuffers
  • The OpenGL ES 3.2 API is now exposed in a cross-platform manner via QOpenGLExtraFunctions.
  • QImages can now use more than 2GByte of pixel data.
  • Added QFont::PreferNoShaping style strategy.
Qt Widgets
  • QWidget::createWindowContainer() is now functional on Android
  • QOpenGLWidget is now usable for rendering and reading back (grabbing) offscreen content.
