Nokia updates its Qt lineup. No funeral here.

Nokia today further strengthened its Qt offering by officially launching Qt Quick and releasing updates to other Qt product family members. Since the Feb 11th announcement of Nokia Choosing MicroSoft Platform for Smartphones, this Nokia move confirms Qt as not being dead with the following releases / Updates:

  • Qt Quick launched – Used for rapid creation of User Interfaces and applications for any Qt platform ideally for developers who prefer scripting languages such as JavaScript over the C++ of ‘traditional’ Qt.
  • Qt SDK 1.1 beta released – A merged SDK that will eventually replace the Nokia Qt SDK (mobile) and the Qt SDK (desktop and embedded).
  • Released today – Qt 4.7.2, Qt Creator 2.1, Qt Mobility 1.1.1 – Three key releases underpin today’s Qt Quick launch. Qt Creator 2.1 contains Qt Quick tooling and other new features, while Qt 4.7.2 and Qt Mobility 1.1.1 are maintenance releases that address key issues present in previous versions.
  • Community spotlight – Qt for Android community port

“Qt Quick changes the whole paradigm of the development of embedded and mobile applications…We are able to create pixel perfect user interfaces in a tenth of the time it used to take.” Mark Hatch, Chief Operating Officer, ICS
