Qt 3.1 is the newest version of the C++ application framework for multiplatform development, enabling developers to write a single source tree that runs natively on various platforms. Among the additions to version 3.1 is ActiveQt, a framework that allows developers to use Qt to create ActiveX controls and to use Qt applications as ActiveX servers. Qt 3.1 also has new facilities for Motif integration, which lets developers gradually insert Qt-based code into existing Motif applications. Other additions include an improved property editor for the Qt Designer layout tool that can operate on multiple widgets simultaneously, improved multithreading and increased class library assistance.

Free Webinar: Hadoop
How to Build an Optimal Hadoop Cluster to Store and Maintain Unlimited Amounts of Data Using Microservers
Realizing the promise of Apache® Hadoop® requires the effective deployment of compute, memory, storage and networking to achieve optimal results. With its flexibility and multitude of options, it is easy to over or under provision the server infrastructure, resulting in poor performance and high TCO. Join us for an in depth, technical discussion with industry experts from leading Hadoop and server companies who will provide insights into the key considerations for designing and deploying an optimal Hadoop cluster.
Some of key questions to be discussed are:
- What is the “typical” Hadoop cluster and what should be installed on the different machine types?
- Why should you consider the typical workload patterns when making your hardware decisions?
- Are all microservers created equal for Hadoop deployments?
- How do I plan for expansion if I require more compute, memory, storage or networking?
