Qt 4.6.2 stable for Maemo 5 with first Mobile APIs

Feb 18, 2010

The 4.6 release from Qt comes with a Symbian installer, Qt APIs for mobile devices and the promised Maemo 5 port.

With this point release, Qt 4.6 brings the so-called Smart Symbian installer on board. It functions as a dependency manager and is meant to reduce the size of large Qt-based Symbian applications. The new Qt APIs are also playing in the mobile league, and will make it easier for developers to equip multi-platform applications with localization, communication and roaming abilities.

Details are available on the Qt mobility project's blog. Both these changes are still in the beta.

Besides the now stable Maemo 5 support, the update contains a number of bug fixes, which can be found in the release notes. Qt 4.6 was released early December 2009, the point one release middle of January. All 4.6.2 products can be found on the download site.
