While Qt 5.6 was just released after being delayed by months, Qt 5.7 was supposed to be a quick follow-on release but it too is already seeing delays.

Qt 5.7 went into alpha while Qt 5.6 was still being prepared for release, but now the Qt 5.7 beta is going to be delayed by an unknown amount of time.

The Qt Release Team meeting this week determined that Qt 5.7 Beta won't be able to ship tomorrow, 31 March, as originally planned.

The developers are now creating their first binary snapshot of Qt 5.7 now that their Git integration test succeeded. However, in not having any proper test results available so far of Qt 5.7, the beta can't be tagged this week. After the binary snapshot has been tested, they will come up with a new release schedule for this toolkit update.
