OpenEmbedded and the Yocto Project always had Qt4 libraries, tools and sample applications integrated in its core layer. Qt5 is the new major version of this popular toolkit and it was being adopted early on in OE via meta-qt5 layer, with more advanced features and uses cases being added recently.
In this presentation we'll quickly cover the basics of Qt5 integration in the Yocto Project by bundling toolkit libraries and examples into the root file system. Then we'll proceed into more advanced topics:
* building a standalone host SDK for development and cross-compilation of Qt5 applications outside of the OE/Yocto workflow
* modifying old Qt4-based application recipes to support both existing Qt4 and new Qt5 with seamless switching between the toolkits with minimal changes
* utilizing some platform-specific 3D and graphics acceleration, such as GLES on TI SoCs.
