Qt 5.0 Release Candidate - Final In About One Week

After the past few days being met by a few test releases after betas in the prior weeks, the Qt 5.0 release candidate was officially made available this morning. The final release of the Qt 5.0 tool-kit is expected to happen next week.

Lars Knoll has announced the Qt 5.0 release candidate availability via the Digia Qt Blog. Knoll writes, "we’ve made tremendous progress in stabilizing Qt and getting all the remaining pieces in place. While we have over the last couple of weeks fixed hundreds of bugs in the code base, most of the focus has actually been on polishing the usability of the product. The product structure and feature set is pretty much what we already have announced with the second beta. But apart from pure bug fixes there are still a couple of things that are new."

Among the recent Qt 5.0 changes recently have been dramatic improvements to the Qt documentation, "a lot of love" to the Qt example code, and there are a few last minute API changes to the Qt5 tool-kit.

Lars Knoll ended today's Qt 5.0 RC posting by saying that if all goes well the official release should be out in about one week. After facing several delays that pushed back Qt 5.0 from being released this summer, the latest target has been to ship it before year's end. "We are feeling confident that the release candidate is getting pretty close to the Qt 5.0 final release and would thus like to invite you all to give it a try. Please use the time now to report any issues you find back to us. If we don’t hear about or find any large issues with the release candidate, we hope to be able to release it as 5.0.0 in about a week from now. Otherwise, we are aiming at fixing the bugs that show up and release a new RC in maybe a week from now."
