Digia has provided an update concerning the state of the Qt 5.2 final release, which could be out as soon as next week.

After Qt 5.2 was planned for a November premiere and that goal was botched due to delays in finishing features, Qt 5.2 has had a release target for a while of being December, albeit even last month delays were still being experienced. This morning we now have a status update from Heikkinen Jani of Digia.

Heikkinen Jani wrote that the "Qt 5.2 Final release is coming really soon." During yesterday's release team meeting they decided to try targeting the official release on 10 December, or next week Tuesday. If they are to meet that deadline though they need to have the final packages ready this Thursday, 5 December. Heikkinen shared this in calling out for last minute testing and for Qt developers to finish up their work.

Those interested in the last minute release details can see this mailing list message. For end-users curious about features in Qt 5.2, check out this feature overview.
