Important information for apps targeting Symbian
For applications targeting Symbian, please note:
- On-device debugging - TRK is no longer supported by Qt Creator 2.3, you must update to CODA. Note, in addition, that CODA is not supported on S60 3rd Edition phones.
- Qt 4.7.4 and Qt Mobility 1.2 - these are at beta level, applications created using these APIs cannot be submitted to Nokia Store. Nokia Store will accept such applications when the APIs exit beta.
Qt SDK 1.1.3 cannot be installed as an update to the Nokia Qt SDK 1.0, Qt SDK must be installed separately. To install on an Apple Mac, xCode is required.
Qt SDK is available in the following versions and installation packages:
- 32- or 64-bit Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2, Windows Vista, or Windows 7.
