Launched in May was the Qt for Tizen project to bring the vibrant Qt5 tool-kit to the Tizen open-source Linux platform. After its first alpha release last month, the Qt for Tizen developers have made a heck of a lot of progress and already released Qt for Tizen Alpha 2.

The Qt for Tizen Alpha 2 release was done today and is now based upon the Qt 5.2 Alpha and is recognized by the Qt community as an official community-based work-in-progress Qt port. This Qt Tizen platform also has handling now for the Tizen Reference Devices RD-210 and RD-PQ with OpenGL ES 2.0 acceleration.

Some of the other changes for Qt for Tizen Alpha 2 incllude Qt Quick Controls style compliance, early support for packaging and application, new controls with a native look and feel, and much more.

More details on the second alpha release for this fledging open-source project can be found via their blog with the Qt for Tizen Gets Feature Boost post.
