- Qt 5.11 feature freeze set for Jan. 31 is fast approaching.

Current release plans:
- Qt 5.9.4: The goal is to get a first snapshot out this week, with a release in mid-January.
- Qt 5.10.1: The goal is to get a snapshot out within the next week or two, with a release by end of January.
- Qt 5.11.0: The official feature freeze is scheduled for Jan 31. The goal is to get a binary snapshot out by then.
