Developers who use Qt are able to create very rich and fluid native applications for the BlackBerry 10 platform. There is an insatiable demand from BlackBerry customers for apps, and the new platform presents an exciting opportunity for developers in China ahead of our planned launches.
Given our roots in MeeGo it was a natural choice to go for Qt to support our UI and include Qt Creator in the Sailfish OS SDK.
Qt 5.0 is the first major Qt release Digia has put out since acquiring the full Qt rights from Nokia earlier this autumn. We are happy to release Qt 5.0 together with the Qt Project and are pleased that we have been able to quickly and successfully integrate our development teams immediately after the acquisition process to deliver this anticipated Qt release. Qt 5.0 marks the beginning of the new Qt strategy and serves as the foundation for the further development of Qt.
