Maybe some of you already know, but the next release of qtcreator will support official Blackberry 10. Actually you already can test it : http://qt-project.org/wiki/Setting-up-Qt-Creator-f
About cascade, if you are a qt developer, you probably notice that depsite the UI looks shiny, the code style and the IDE are very ugly. Have you also had a hearth attack when you saw how to position items using padding and margin? Or was it when you saw that ImageView doesn't provide network support ?
So, I didn't yet understand why cascade has not been build on the top of Qt instead reinvent the wheel... Maybe, there is some reason like performance or maybe we just have to wait next release.
But now, I have a question... How cascade gonna follow the next release of Qt5 with new features like QtQuick2, Qml3D, qmlShaders ? They plan to remake everything from the scratch ? Or maybe they will not use those feature..
Compared to cascade, Qt SDK is the opposite. Nice code style and very easy IDE. But actually, there is no support for a native user interface. But I am sure, thanks to openSource, bb10 component will be created realy soon.
So in this case.... why keep cascade ?
