While the release of Qt 5.2 is imminent and it features full support for Apple iOS and Google Android along side Qt's other mobile platform support, but missing from the party is Tizen support. Qt for Tizen is still in an alpha state but today they've put out their fifth development release.

Qt for Tizen is currently developed externally from the Qt code-base but the fifth update brings it in line with Qt 5.2 RC1 and the upstream Tizen 2.2.1 Linux operating system.

Qt for Tizen Alpha 5 also features improved Qt Quick Controls for Tizen applications, better screen orientation change detection, and handling for Tizen's virtual keyboard.

More details on Qt for Tizen Alpha 5 are available from the project's blog. Qt for Tizen is mainly targeting mobile and In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) applications. Meanwhile, upstream Qt 5.2 should be released very soon and it has many great features for this leading open-source cross-platform tool-kit.
