We are pleased to say that as a follow up to our previously released Qt Mobility 1.2 Technology preview, the team is now ready to provide our BETA package for your feedback and testing. This package implies that we consider the APIs to be reasonably matured and stable, but not yet frozen.

Work continues at full speed. We hope to polish and be in a position to freeze the APIs in the near future making them then ready for application development.

BETA Source packages:





MeeGo packages and installation guide:



  • Symbian:


Master branch and the latest RPM packages:

As always, If you wish to keep your finger on the pulse and check out an up to date status, please view the Qt Mobility master branch and download the RPM packages that we create from the master branch on a regular basis.

Source code: http://qt.gitorious.org/qt-mobility/qt-mobility/commits/master

MeeGo packages: http://download.meego.com/live/devel:/qt-mtf:/qt-mobility:/1.2/testing/

We hope you enjoy the BETA!

Kind regards,

Gerard, on behalf of the Qt Mobility team.

Is there a changelog or release notes anywhere?

Changes? says:

Yeah, Mb you will write short description of this beta release?

secretNinja says:

Shouldn’t the Symbian link point to “http://get.qt.nokia.com/qt/add-ons/qt-mobility-symbian-opensource-1.2.0-beta1.zip” ?

I have to build it myself, haven’t I?

Happy to see the fast development of Qt and everything around it. Thank you 🙂

Gerard says:

@ Hollo and Changes? – the changes are documented here: http://doc.qt.nokia.com/qtmobility-1.2.0-beta1/changes-1.2.0-beta1.txt

@ secretNinja – thanks for pointing out the link error. I have fixed it and also please note that the .sis files are contained within the package.

Vladimir says:

I can’t compile it on Windows. I tried both MSVC 2008 and MinGW with no success. During configure I get messages that DirectShow, WMP and WM SDK is not found. But I have the WMP, WM SDK and DirectX SDK installed.

What might be wrong? If I look at the log created when using MinGW, there is this error: c:mingwbin../lib/gcc/mingw32/4.5.0/../../../../include/amaudio.h:7:20: fatal error: dsound.h: No such file or directory

What does it mean?

Ling says:

For MSVC2008:
What Windows system are you using?
DirectShow has been moved to Windows SDK since 2005.
The configure will check the header files: wmp.h, wmsdk.h, dshow.h which should be in the directory like “C:Program FilesMicrosoft SDKsWindowsv6.0ainclude”.
If you do have those files, you can check your VC environment settings:
1. select Tools->Options from menu
2. select the “Project and Solutions”->”VC++ Directories” on the left
3. select “Include files” on the right
4. see if you have the directory which contains the wmp, wmsdk, dshow headers included in the directory list there. If not you could manually add it. (You probably need to add the corresponding library directory as well under “Library files”).

For MinGW:
I would suggest you to use the mingw included in the QtCreator(under the installed directory). Some versions of mingw does not contain dsound.h (DirectSound header file), though you could manually copy that file from DirectX SDK directory to your mingw include directory.

If you still have problems, please use the mailinglist: qt-mobility-feedback@qt.nokia.com. Thanks

Gerard says:

Thanks Ling 🙂

Also separately Meego.com users please note that the Meego install instructions had an error that has now been corrected.
Users were directed to an earlier Beta0 package rather than the more recent Beta1.

Zeddy says:

I hope i have just missed something, but if not, are you seriously telling me there is still no access to the native maps, offline?

achipa says:

Can we get a v1.2.0-beta1 tag on gitorious ?

Gerard says:

Work on offline maps integration is ongoing, however the plug-in enabling this will not be part of Qt Mobility. It will instead be directly deployed to the applicable Nokia device.

Yes, our Release management team will arrange and share that here asap.

sebastian says:

I tried to run the annotatedurl example on a C7, it compiles and starts perfectly, but the screen remains black.
Is this due to the C7 Firmware 014.002 yet lacking some necessary middleware to access the NFC hardware?

The ndefeditor example runs fine for loading/editing records, but reading/writing tags does not work, obviously because I only have Mifare 1k for testing, which are not supported…
But would it work with NFC Forum tags already, i.e. we don’t have to wait for the Symbian Anna update anymore to actually access NFC capabilities?

sebastian says:

the ndefeditor example still compiles fine unless I try to append these lines to the touchReceive() method:

qDebug(“NFC available”);

makes it cancel with:
:-1: error: Recipe linkandpostlink failed with exit code 1.

Am I doing something wrong, or does it mean we just have to wait a little longer for NFC?

I wish it had at least returned false though…

Toyudai says:


The connectivity API page http://doc.qt.nokia.com/qtmobility-1.2.0-beta1/connectivity-api.html says that there is support for LLCP connectionless mode but I can’t find any documentation. Further looking at qllcpserver.cpp, qllcpserver_p.cpp, qllcpserver_symbian_p.h I could only find the implementation for “CLlcpSocketType2” which is actually connection oriented communication. Is there any way to access connectionless mode API?
