ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Qt

qtlogoFor those of you who never heard Qt, its s a cross-platform application framework used to develop GUI applications software, and its what is used for all the QGIS forms. And now ESRI announced the beta release of the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Qt. From the release announcement:

ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Qt is designed to help C++ developers use the Digia Qt framework to create highly functional GIS applications that use local services, yet the applications can have a small footprint. Local services allow for disconnected work in the field; an ArcGIS Server connection is not required

So it would be interesting to see if next releases would include the Qt python binding as well. And eventually have ‘proper’ python ArcGIS plugins extensions. Who is following who?

Very interesting times ahead…
