Qt Mobility 1.2 Technology Preview

Dec 25, 2010


Here are the Preview source packages of the Qt Mobility 1.2 APIs and a set of RPM packages for MeeGo compatible devices to provide backend support for MeeGo. This review is to obtain your feedback on the design of new APIs early before the APIs are upgraded to a BETA level before ultimately finalising for MeeGo 1.2.

Source packages:

Symbian and other platforms:There will be no Symbian sis packages for this technology preview. If you wish to build Mobility from source for other platforms, you will need to first build Qt. Qt binaries, as provided in Nokia Qt SDK, cannot be used to build Mobility.  Mobility 1.2 requires Qt 4.7.0 as a minimum.

New features:We would like to highlight two new features for your attention.
