Nokia Qt SDK 1.0 released
Nokia have announced the final release of the "Nokia Qt SDK" v1.0. There are versions available for download for Linux, Windows and Mac OS X; includes the MADDE toolchain for Scratchbox-less build and deployment to Maemo and a device simulator. In the announcement, Niels Weber linked to the Forum Nokia announcement: The Nokia Qt SDK leverages the power of the Qt framework and tools, combining them with tools designed to streamline the creation of apps for Symbian and the Maemo platform. The SDK includes the Qt Simulator, which enables apps for Symbian and Maemo devices to be tested on a computer. Your editor has had a very brief play, and will be writing up his thoughts and experiences later. Certainly, a modern IDE; toolchain and IDE are an enormous step up for Maemo. Hopefully, it won't be too late to deliver useful software for Maemo 5, whilst we wait to see how viable MeeGo software (and the platform itself) is on N900s.
