Qt 5.9 released

By ris Lars Knoll takes a look
at the Qt 5.9 LTS release. “With Qt 5.9, we have had a strong focus on performance and stability. We’ve fixed a large number of bugs all across Qt, and we have done a lot of work to improve our continuous integration system. This will make it a lot easier for us to create new releases (both patch level and minor releases) from 5.9 onward.

We’ve also added automated performance regression testing to our testing
infrastructure, something that will allow us to continuously monitor our
work on improving the performance of Qt.” Qt 5.9 will be supported
for three years.
