Qt 4.6.0 for Symbian “Colossus” beta-release

15. October 2009 at 00:55

Today Nokia and Qt released the Beta version of Qt 4.6.0. Qt is a cross-platform application and UI framework. Using Qt, one can write applications once and deploy them across desktop, mobile and embedded operating systems without rewriting the source code. The beta runs on S60 3rd Edition as well as 5th Edition devices. I’ve installed it on my Nokia N97 and it looks really impressive. The focus of this release has been to stabilize the Symbian port, as well as adding a backend for the Phonon multimedia library enabling simple audio and video playback. The “Colossus” beta-release contains QtCore, QtTest, QtGui, QtNetwork, QtScript, QtSvg, QtWebKit, QtXML and Phonon as well as documentation and examples and demo.

Qt 4.6.0

To download Colossus straight to your phone point your phone’s browser to qt.nokia.com/phonedemo. For best performance we recommend to install in Phone memory.

Over the last year many so-called “augmented reality” applications have been popping up, specially on the Android platform. While the concept is not new (research on the proper field of Augmented Reality dates back to the ’90s), it has generated some media attention lately. Unfortunately there is no mention so far of any similar application on Symbian smartphones, so Sequence Point Software S.L decided to bring this function on S60 devices. The result is ARound. This project aims to fill the gap by providing a prototype application featuring the use of sensors (GPS and compass), camera and location based services.
