Nokia Releases Qt 5 Alpha

Nokia recently made an alpha version of Qt 5 available to the Symbian developer community. Qt 5 will eventually succeed Qt 4, which has been around for nearly seven years. The new developer tools have been updated to reflect the changing landscape in mobile hardware and allow applications to be written for both desktop and mobile environments. Qt 5 makes better use of processing hardware to deliver accelerated graphics performance on low-tier equipment. It also provides an advanced user interface though QML and Javascript, and can be used to create apps that are connected to the web. According to Nokia, it is looking for feedback from the developer community on this initial build, which is not the complete framework. Nokia expects Qt 5 may reach a beta or near-final state late in 2012.
