Gamasutrareported that LucasFilm will be usingTrollTech’s Qt widget toolkit for, among otherthings, to create cross-platform game development tools at LucasArts:
Steve Sullivan, director of R&D at Lucasfilm, said, “We used Qt for a fewsmall projects and were impressed with its ease-of-use and support forcross-platform development. We were convinced our company could leverage thison a larger scale in our mainstream artist tools.”
While this probably will have no impact on LucasArts’ lack of interest inLinux game ports (there was some brief noise about a StarWars: Battlefrontport way back when), between this and Unreal Tournament III’s editorbeing wxWidgets-based, I think stepsin the right direction are being made.
