Nokia releases Qt SDK 1.1
The Qt developers at Nokia have announced the release of version 1.1 of the Qt SDK, the latest edition of the software development kit for the Qt user interface framework. The milestone release is the first version of the Qt SDK that allows developers to create applications based on Qt 4.7, the cross platform C++ framework for GUI applications.
Developers can now submit applications created with Qt Quick as part of the Qt SDK 1.1 to the Ovi Store. An introductory guide to using the Qt SDK to create Qt Quick UIs is provided on the Forum Nokia Wiki.
The developers note that Qt SDK 1.1 must be installed separately as the Nokia Qt SDK 1.0 cannot be updated to the new version. Xcode is required for installation on Mac OS X. Users are asked to provide feedback and report any bugs that they find.
Details about the SDK can be found in Nokia's official press release and in a post on the Qt Labs Developer Blogs. Version 1.1 of the Qt SDK is available to download for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux from qt.nokia.com or from the Forum.Nokia web site. The components in the Qt SDK are licensed under a number of open source licences, including the LGPL, and under Nokia's own proprietary licences.
