Digia is hoping to make available the first Qt 5.2 alpha build next Monday.

The Qt 5.2 major release of the Qt5 tool-kit is expected for release by the end of the year and with new features. Among the Qt 5.2 feature work has been a new QML engine, full Google Android support, full Apple iOS support, Qt Quick Controls for touch-based devices, new Qt modules, and various other changes. Qt 5.2 will also have some changes needed for KDE Frameworks 5 and a new Scene Graph Renderer.

For those getting excited to try out a tagged Qt 5.2 test release, Digia is hoping to do the alpha release next week. Heikkinen Jani shared on the Qt mailing list this morning that they're aiming to do the Qt 5.2 Alpha on Monday.

Qt developers hoped to be able to do the alpha already, but there's two more changes they need to get integrated before the alpha release on Monday if all goes well. The two changes are adding Qt Mac Extras and Qt Android Extras to the default modules.
