Built on Qt 5.6.0 and based on Qt Creator 3.5.1, the new Ubuntu SDK IDE and Devkit packages come with a great set of new features. Among them, we can mention the ability to detect ARM64 (AArch64) devices, support for migrating templates to UITK (UI Toolkit) 1.3, as well as the upgrade of the Ubuntu Desktop Kit to the APIs of the OTA-11 update for Ubuntu Touch mobile OS.
Moreover, it is now possible to enable the distribution of the Ubuntu SDK IDE and DevKit packages in the “snap” and “click” formats, and there is also the ability to adjust the HTML5 template to mirror the QML sample application. The UI Toolkit (UITK) component gallery has been improved, and it should work as expected now (available from Tools -> Ubuntu -> Showcase Gallery).
In the coming days, the Ubuntu SDK team will prepare a small point release promising to add a new welcome screen, which provides users with direct access to the UI Toolkit showcase gallery, as well as a fully functional desktop kit targeted at click packaged (ARMHf) pocket desktop IDE (Integrated Development Environment).,
