What is gLabels-qt?

gLabels-qt is the development version of the next major version of gLabels (4.0).

What's new in gLabels 4?

  • Based on the Qt5 framework.
  • Updated UI based on typical workflows.
  • Intended to be a cross-platform application.
    • So far, it has been built and tested under Linux, Windows 7, and Windows 10. (Windows testing is still very intermittent.)


gLabels-qt has been under off-and-on development for several years. It is still missing several features to bring it in parity with glabels-3.4. These include

  • Optional Evolution and VCard backends.
  • An online manual


Latest Release

There are currently no official releases of gLabels 4.

Continuous Integration Snapshots

Continuous integration snapshots are not official releases. These snapshots represent the latest bleeding-edge development (unstable) code. Please, DO NOT use it in a production environment. Do not expect compatibility or consistency of features between snapshots.
