A simple application is about 1mb with lots of U++ features statically linked (thanks to BSD license).

I was measuring the same with Qt5 and a simple hello world application (with all the required DLLs) is about: 32MB

That's right! 32MB for a hello world app. Confused

I know you can rebuild Qt and configure it to have less features (which takes hours to build btw), but it's not really practical to have new build every time you release a different project.

Plus they don't allow static linking with the LGPL license.

So, I conclude that one the best magic that U++ does is pack a GUI app with built-in SQL in about 1mb, and the framework takes minutes to build, not hours.
