The release of Qt 5.1 is coming this month. This first update to Digia's Qt5 does feature some exciting new features just months after the Qt 5.0 debut.

Among the improvements already talked about on Phoronix for Qt 5.1 include better Wayland support, Google Android support, Apple iOS support, and more OpenGL functionality. However, that's not all of the new additions to Qt 5.1.

On the Qt Project Wiki, developers are beginning to list other interesting items to be found with Qt 5.1. Among the other noteworthy new features include:

- New modules of Qt Quick Controls, Qt X11 Extras, Qt Sensors, and Qt Serial Port. Qt X11 Extras provides for extra components related to the X11/X.Org support, Qt Sensors exposes hardware and motion sensors via QML and C++ interfaces, and Qt Serial Port allows interacting with hardware and virtual serial ports.

- The Android and iOS ports of Qt5 are considered as a "technology preview" for the 5.1 release. There will be a reference installer for Android.

- Qt Network supports for SSL session re-use to allow for much faster connections. There's also some other security/encryption related changes to Qt Network.

- QCryptographicHash in Qt Core now supports SHA3.

Stay tuned to the Wiki page for updates as it's still being touched by developers.
