Release 2.13.2: Update to Qt 5.9.2 & Qt Creator 4.4.1 | Android Oreo & iOS 11 Fixes & Many Improvements

By Christian

Felgo 2.13.2 adds support for Qt Creator 4.4.1 and Qt 5.9.2 which fixes Android deployment issues with the latest Android SDK (Android Oreo) and NDK versions and adds support for iOS 11.

It also stores your previous window position and size to accelerate the development process and adds many bug fixes and improvements.

Qt 5.9.2 & Qt Creator 4.4.1 Support

The latest stable Qt and Qt Creator versions provide many bug fixes and improvements. The most relevant change is a fix for building Android projects with ndk r16 and higher and supporting Android tools in Android SDK versions 26.1.1 and higher.

Qt Creator - Qt Quick Designer

Thanks to the internal installation changes we rolled out with Felgo 2.13.0 and 2.13.1, you do not need to manually update the Qt version any longer. Instead, this update will automatically update the Qt version for you for Desktop platforms.

iOS 11 & Android Oreo Support

If you have the Android or iOS platforms installed, please make sure to follow these steps:

  1. Perform the Felgo Update by running the MaintenanceTool in the Felgo SDK directory and select “Update Components”.

  2. After the update, open the MaintenanceTool again and Select the “Add or remove components option
    Felgo Installer Windows Add Components
  3. Add the Qt 5.9.2 packages for Android and iOS. This image shows the initial state before you seleced Qt 5.9.2:

    Add the Qt 5.9.2 packages for Android and iOS. iOS is not listed in this screenshot as it is not available on Windows. Unselect the Qt 5.9 package like shown in this image:

  4. In Qt Creator, choose the new kit for Android and iOS based on Qt 5.9.2.

If you are using Felgo Plugins, additionally follow the steps described here. See here how to update your project to support iOS 11.

We will simplify the update process for iOS & Android builds with one of the next updates. So these steps will be done automatically for you just like it is now for Windows, Mac and Linux.

Restore Last Window Position

With this Felgo release, the last window position & size is automatically stored on Desktop platforms (Windows, Mac & Linux) during development when you close your app or game. At the following app start, this last position and width/height settings are then restored.

This accelerates the development process, because you save the time of re-positioning and re-sizing the window to your last setting. This feature is enabled by default for development builds. It is disabled for publish builds – you can enable publish builds by modifying the config.json as explained here. You can also manually enable and disable this new feature with the storeWindowGeometry property.

More Fixes & Improvements

Besides the highlights mentioned above, there are many other fixes and improvements for the SDK. For a full list of improvements and fixes to Felgo in this update, please check out our change log!
