Qt Creator provides a cross-platform, complete integrated development environment (IDE) for application developers to create applications for multiple desktop, embedded, and mobile device platforms, such as Android and iOS. It is available for Linux, OS X and Windows operating systems.

CMake Support: Variables in the configuration UI in the Projects mode are now grouped by prefix, and have type-specific editors for boolean and path values. You can also change the type of variables and unset accidentally added ones. Also, we improved the handling of configuration changes outside of Qt Creator. The change notification now shows detailed information about how the cached values differ from the values on disk.
Android Support: Integrated Android SDK package manager - Qt Creator 4.4. Since Android SDK tools version 25.3.0, there is no UI tool available to manage the Android SDK packages. Because of that, we have added such UI to Qt Creator. Unfortunately, the command line tool for managing SDKs that is provided with the SDK cannot update packages on Windows, and fails with JDK 9, so this applies to Qt Creator as well. Also, we provide better information about problems with the installed SDK, such as missing components or not met minimum version requirements.
Qt Creator no longer supports local deployment nor Ant, starting with this version. Both features have been deprecated for a long time.
Other Improvements: We started on making the File System navigation pane more useful. It is showing a file system tree now, and you can select the root directory from a list containing the computer root, your home directory, your default projects directory, and the base directories of all the projects you have open in Qt Creator. More features are to come in the future.
Locator now does fuzzy camel case matching in the same way as code completion does. For example, you can type c andesu in the locator to open the AndroidDebugSupport class.
On Windows, we fixed detection of Visual Studio Build Tools 2017.
For iOS, we had to fix our mechanism for switching between simulator device types with Xcode 9, because that changed the behavior of the Simulator application.

We are happy to announce the release of Qt Creator 4.0.0. Starting with this release, we are making the Clang static analyzer integration, extended QML profiler features and auto test integration (experimental) available under open source. The previously commercial-only connection editor and path editor of Qt Quick Designer were already open sourced with Qt Creator 3.6.0. Qt Creator is now available under commercial license and GPLv3 (with exceptions). The exceptions ensure that there are no license restrictions on generated code, and that bridging to 3rd party code is still possible.
