BitRock Releases InstallBuilder for Qt

BitRock has announced its partnership with Trolltech and its release of the first Qt-based installation tool - BitRock InstallBuilder for Qt. BitRock InstallBuilder for Qt turns the packaging and deployment process for multi-platform applications into a simple task for independent software vendors and custom application developers.

Qt sets the standard for high performance, cross-platform software development and some of the world's largest software companies rely on Qt to create innovative, advanced solutions across multiple platforms. Now, with BitRock InstallBuilder for Qt, developers can easily generate installers that have a native look and feel on Linux, Windows, Mac OS X and other supported platforms.

The first release of BitRock InstallBuilder for Qt includes support for Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X. Support for Solaris, FreeBSD, HP-UX, AIX, and IRIX will be added shortly. BitRock InstallBuilder for Qt combines robust functionality with a very easy to use interface that allows developers to use both GUI and command line interfaces to quickly develop native, self-contained installers that do not require bundling a Java runtime or a self-extraction step. The ability to build installers for all supported platforms from one project file allows for easy maintenance and updating of installers, so that developers can spend more time on their primary development tasks.
