Trolltech Rolls Out Qt 3.2 C++ Multiplatform Framework

7/24/2003 - Trolltech announced the release of Qt, version 3.2. Qt, Trolltech's C++ multiplatform application framework, is the industry-leading C++ tool used to create applications that run natively on Windows, Linux/Unix and Mac OS X, all from the same codebase.
