Toolkit for GUI developers
Qt is a toolkit for software developers.
Intially developed by Trolltech, then Nokia and now Digia, it simplifies the task of writing and maintaining GUI (graphical user interface), cross-platform applications. It is written in C++ and is fully object-oriented. Qt/X11 does not require any additional graphical layer above X11. It is highly optimized native code that runs directly on top of the lowest graphical layer Xlib.
An integrated development environnement called Qt Creator is also available.
