GammaRay 2.6.0 – a major new release

GammaRay Model Inspector.

GammaRay 2.6 brings you three major new features:

  • We merged the previous model and selection models tools into a new, unified QAbstractItemModel inspector, allowing you to now also see selections and cell flags, as well as to inspect deactivated cells.
  • The new Wayland compositor inspector enables you to observe Wayland clients of a QtWayland compositor, including their surface content and event activity.
  • QMetaObject validation will indicate common problems in property or signal/slot declarations that can cause issues when using the corresponding objects e.g. within QML.

Of course there are also plenty of improvements for your productivity all over the place, such as more widely available object navigation and extended in-app object picking. GammaRay now also supports property editing of nested value types, which is needed, for example, for editing widget size policies.

Meanwhile development on the next version is already under way, bringing a new Qt3D geometry inspector, an improved enum/flag property editor and inspection of QStyle style hints.

The source code can be found on GitHub here.

Tarballs and zipballs for v2.6.0 are available here.

GammaRay is also available as part of the Qt Automotive Suite.

GammaRay is a tool to poke around in a Qt-application and also to manipulate the application to some extent. GammaRay uses various DLL injection techniques to hook into an application at runtime and provide access to a lot of interesting information.
