Nokia Qt SDK 1.0RC released

Today we have published the Release Candidate for the Nokia Qt SDK 1.0. This is mostly a bug-fix release based on the input we have received from your side and we highly appreciate your efforts here. The download location is at Forum Nokia at the following link. Also we have added the Release Candidate of Qt Creator 2.0 into this package.

Compared to the beta we have now everything available on gitorious as well(especially all the Qt Simulator components, as Christian already mentioned here). So if you like to get involved, get the sources and play around with them, contributions are highly welcomed.

One thing I would like to highlight is, that you cannot upgrade via the updater plugin from Qt Creator to the Release Candidate. This is due to some required changes in the infrastructure itself and we hope that this will not happen for a long time.

Furthermore it is not possible to overwrite the beta with the release candidate, as some components create files which are incompatible to each other. For instance you will not be able to install the madde component, as the postinstall step will fail with an existing configuration error message. Hence you should either install the release candidate into another directory or uninstall the beta first.

We hope you will enjoy the updated version and you can always provide feedback via our Qt Bug Tracker.
