What is the benefit? Why is this valuable?
Qt Installer will be one of the first things, which Qt newcomers run into, when they start using Qt. The installer should look nice and provide such a user experience that new users find installation effortless, while experienced users can quickly choose the components need. Good installer UI is one part, which makes evaluators think Qt is an excellent framework to start creating products and this experience would bring us more customers. On the other hand, our existing customers should feel our tooling, including the installer, are efficient and easy to use that they do not start considering using competitive solutions.
What are common use cases?
There is a continuous demand to simplify Qt Installer UI, while at the same time adding new components, new versions, new patch releases, and change the component hierarchy. There are two main goals: provide Qt users an effortless and efficient installation experience and handle the changes in a manageable way.
