Nokia releases updated version of Qt SDk, Opens up community (a bit)

Today Nokia announced an update to the Qt SDK including Ct Creator, as well as the mobility and notifications API’s and the simulator.  The biggest change (in my opinion) is to do with Simulating NFC tags.  All new Nokia phones will support NFC and this will make it easier to develop apps that take advantage of NFC interactions.

Other changes include better simulation of the light sensor and things like pinch-to-zoom, as well as QML bindings in the notifications API so that the UI can recieve notifications more easily.

This release versions are QT SDK 1.1.3 and Nokia Creator 2.3. You can see the release notes and download the new versions on the Qt Labs or Nokia Developer websites.

Nokia opens up community (a bit)

Yesterday, Nokia opened up part of it’s community section again, and you can now view the Wiki’s and Blogs in that area.  The discussion board, the nerve center of the Nokia community, is for now still closed off while they further investigate last weeks hacking.  Hopefully things will be back up and running soon.


About bluechrism

I am a software developer with most professional experience in the Windows .Net realm and I'm currently a WPF developer with Starkey Labs. However, I have wanted for some time to start the mobile developer journey properly and being an N900 owner, this was to be in the realm of QT. Job hunting, moving to Minnesota and changing jobs put my plans on hold 6-12 months but things are starting to settle now, just as I'm getting sorted to start some things, Microsoft and Nokia merge. This blog is about my novice mobile development experiences and hopefully will end up complete with links to download some apps on various platforms, but obviously by the name, Sybian, Maemo/Meego and Windows Mobile. In other stuff, I am English, I support Everton FC, I have visited Glastonbury music festival 5 times and recommend it to anyone. I am married and my wife and i have a dog called Friday.
