Qt Software (formerly Trolltech) Releases Version for Nokia's S60



Qt Software, the company fomerly known as "Trolltech," has announced "Qt for S60," a new version of its C++ application development development framework. The new release is designed to support Nokia's S60 architecture and run on the Symbian OS operating system. (Trolltech was acquired by Nokia earlier this year.)

The cross-platform Qt framework lets developers create applications once, then deploy them on any of the Windows, Mac, Linux, Windows CE, Windows Mobile, and embedded Linux platforms. With the inclusion of the S60 platform, Qt Software claims that developers have an additional 80 million target devices that they can support with their Qt-based applications.

"Qt brings an elegant and intuitive C++ development tool to the S60 platform, improving the ability to develop richer user experiences on the platform, and making S60 on Symbian OS even more attractive for developers to target with their applications and services," said Qt's Sebastian Nystrom.

An early technical preview of Qt for S60 is available for download from Qt Software. Qt for S60 will work with S60 Third Edition Feature Pack 1 and later releases. The first production release of Qt for S60 will be available in the second quarter of 2009.
