    Phoronix: Qt 5.12 Release Candidate Available, Final Coming In Early December

    As likely the last development milestone before officially releasing Qt 5.12 LTS, the release candidate was issued this morning...

    Shame this wasn't fixed: https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-71238, altough it is a new bug introduced in Qt5.12.

      That's OK, it's a QML bug.

        But It will break all "hamburger menus" in KDE Plasma, see: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=399914
        Unless there is a workaround made for it in Plasma.

          It will? I have been using 5.12 prereleases with Plasma for months. Maybe I just never use those menus?

          Edit: Ahh, they only fail to work the second time you open them. I have been using them, but apparantly not twice in a row.

            Gotta hand it to whatever is left of the trolls, they sure can introduce bugs faster than they resolve them. A coarse estimate is that about 48.7% of the developer work hours has been wasted on redundancies and trend 'horing, over which there should be a software architect or two that needs to be fired... out of a cannon and into the sun.

            At least now they finally bothered to produce a binary build for babies like cl33r

              That is actually quite likely, so far I have seen only theese three: Top-left in System Settings, top-right in Elisa and Session selector in SDDM.

                Wtf, the Qt company often if not always produces binary builds, they even have a server mirrors for faster downloads. Didn't you know that?

                  I think the only troll here is you.

                    If the hamburger menu is what I think it is - I hate it with passion. In Plasma 5 when I click on this button to show up the app menu it takes like 1 sec to show up and the menu randomly hides which is very frustrating.
                    In general I hate QML because it's the fast food of Qt software apps - it allows devs to shit out apps quicker, look nicer but less responsive and sometimes with hickups because of the intricacies of QML (e.g. in gnome when you click for the first time after booting on the clock - it shows up instantly, in Plasma 5 it takes 1-2 seconds).
