KDDockWidgets 1.7.0 Released

We are happy to announce the release of KDDockWidgets version 1.7.0!

What is KDDockWidgets?

KDDockWidgets is a development framework for custom-tailored docking systems in Qt, to use when you need advanced docking that is not supported by QDockWidgets. It was created by Sérgio Martins as a time-saving alternative to QDockWidgets. The ease-of-use of KDDockWidgets can save you lots of frustration as well, in that you won’t have to deal with the myriad bugs and the difficulties and complexities faced when working with QDockWidgets.

What’s new in release 1.7.0?

KDDockWidgets is continuously maturing, with more features available for its users.

A few of the new additions found in this update are among others:

We introduced DockWidget::setFloatingWindowFlags(flags), which allows for different FloatingWindows to have different window flags. As an example, some have Qt::Tool while others have Qt::Window. Complementary to that it is now possible to specify Qt::Tool or Qt::Window per floating window. Furthermore, you are able to restore layouts without touching floating dock widgets.

If you are looking for a development framework for custom-tailored docking systems, KDDockWidgets should definitely be on your list. The latest version, 1.7.0, offers more options and an even more seamless experience for developers looking for advanced docking.
