Earlier this month, I reported about a community driven initiative to port Qt to Tizen. Only a few days have passed and Qt for Tizen 1.0 Alpha 1 have been announced. I was lucky enough to meet Leon Anavi, one of the main contributors of the Qt for Tizen group at the 2013 Tizen Developer Conference in San Francisco, and gave me a personal demo of Qt 5.1 running on an actual Tizen developer device (RD-PQ). Check out the video below.
As you can see on the demo, Qt is easily running on Tizen 2.1 Nectarine at 60 fps. You can also see however that the Qt apps are still beine launched via command line. Leon also mentioned that there are still some things that needs to be worked out, such as support for the pop-up keyboard.
If you are a fan of both Qt and Tizen, feel free to help with the initiative. You can find all the details of the community at the Qt for Tizen wiki page.
