QtLocation 5.9: from tilted maps to pluggable engines, The Qt Company

In this talk you will learn what features are now available in QtLocation 5.9, how to use them, and what new scenarios they enable. With Qt5.9, the Qt Location module has received numerous new features, some of which have finally disrupted the internal limitations the module used to have. Thanks to this, the module can now make use of 3rd party, pluggable map engines for displaying the maps and the user-added content on the maps. The module now also allows tilting and rotating maps. Many other features have been also introduced, still maintaining source and binary compatibility as always.
