Digia / The Qt Company has finally managed to get Qt 5.5 into a shape for branching and as a result the alpha version is now available for early testing.

Qt 5.5 is running weeks behind schedule with the 5.5 Alpha version coming exactly one month later than planned and by this time we were already supposed to be up around the beta stage. As a result, it looks like the Qt 5.5 release will get dragged out to mid-summer.

While Qt 5.5 is running late, it's packing many new features. There's Qt3D, Bluetooth improvements, an updated Qt WebEngine, new Qt Quick Controls, Qt Multimedia now supports GStreamer 1.0, Qt Location has been added for providing location support, and various other improvements.

You can learn a bit more about today's Qt 5.5 Alpha release via the qt.io blog announcement.
