The release contains the following:
- Ministro, a system-wide Qt libraries installer
- Qt framework, precompiled for Android (only in a Linux 32-bit version)
- Qt Creator for Android - to create, manage, compile, deploy and debug your software
Although these make extensive use of free software from Nokia Qt Development Frameworks and Google, this is a community project and is not supported or endorsed by either Nokia or Google at present. The alpha release of Necessitas is exciting for KDE as support for Qt is a prerequisite to get KDE software running on a wide range of mobile platforms. The project also underlines Qt's value in community-led, cross platform applications, which KDE strongly supports.
As an alpha release, this is not yet ready for production use and there are known issues and features not yet implemented. The development team welcomes contributions to improve the software and input from potential contributors.
