An upgrade to Qt, Qt 4.7.1, and the final release of Qt Mobility 1.1.0 were released today. Both are now available for download.
Qt 4.7.1 Qt 4.7.1 is a patch release that addresses several minor issues present in Qt 4.7.0. It also introduces OpenGL support for Symbian. To download it, visit http://get.qt.nokia.com
Qt Mobility 1.1.0 Qt Mobility 1.1.0 has reached final release. Qt Mobility 1.1.0 is the latest version of Qt Mobility, a collection of APIs and frameworks oriented towards mobile application development.
Qt Mobility 1.1.0 contains new Qt APIs, a number of enhancements to existing APIs, QML bindings for relevant APIs and support for the MeeGo platform. The new APIs include Organizer, Versit/Organizer, Document Gallery and Feedback.
In terms of API enhancements, the Location API has been extended with a Maps and Navigation API and camera functionality has been added to the Multimedia API. In addition, the Service Framework API now has support for IPC based service invocation.
Qt Add-Ons and Qt Solutions Qt Mobility 1.1.0 is the first Qt product to be released as a Qt Add-On. Qt Add-Ons are components that add value for Qt developers but are not contained within the core Qt libraries. Future Qt Mobility releases, as well as other components (still to be announced), will be made available as Qt Add-Ons from now on.
This change coincides with the Qt Solutions set of components being discontinued, effective immediately. Nine of the Qt Solutions components will be moved onto a GIT repository and placed under a BSD license. The remaining components will be removed from Qt’s product portfolio.
Qt SDK No new Qt SDK is being released today. An updated SDK will be released once the tooling for Qt Quick is finalized. This will occur within version 2.1 of the Qt Creator cross-platform IDE, which is scheduled for release before the end of 2010.
Qt 4.7 for Symbian^3 – developer version In addition to today’s releases, a developer version of Qt 4.7 was recently made available for developers targeting Symbian^3 (note that Symbian^3 and Symbian^4 are now referred to as simply ‘Symbian’).
