Qt Activities, Releases & Proposals

Work continues on preparing Qt 5.4.1 for release, maybe this week.

Current snapshots can be found in: http://download.qt.io/snapshots/qt/5.4/5.4.1/

CI problems have postponed the Qt 5.5 release schedule by a week (so far). A schedule is available here: http://qt-project.org/wiki/Qt-5.5-release

Lars Knoll has proposed deprecating the following modules in Qt 5.5:

  * Qt WebKit
  * Qt Declarative (Qt Quick 1)
  * Qt Script

Some discussion follows: http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lib.qt.devel/19929
