Version 0.4 - january 2008

Developped by J.Coron with Qt Open Source Edition version 4.3.3 on Linux and Windows

Description :

JcQt4develop (free software) is a simple IDE for Qt4 Open Source on Linux and Window systems.

The first versions have been developped with Qt4.1.1 Open Source on Windows and MinGW and with Qt4.2.1 Open Source on Linux.

The version 0.4 has been developped with Qt 4.3.3 Open Source Edition on Linux and Windows

It is composed of two principal parts :

It has also commands allowing to launch Qt assistant, Qt Designer, Qt Linguist and to create/update translation files.

Since the 0.2 version the user is allowed to find easily the errors which are indicated in the compiler messages, by double clicking on the error message : focus is given to the source file where the error occurs, and the cursor is placed at the beginning of the line which is signaled in the compiler's message.

Since the 0.3 version the modified files can be saved automatically before compiling if the user has selected this option.

In this version 0.4 the characters' encoding responds to standard ISO 8859-1 for the texts' editors.
