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.
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.
