Working hard on QtCreator 1.1

It's now 5 weeks and 2 days ago that we put the first QtCreator release - 1.0 - on the public ftp server, though it feels like a much longer time to me. So much work has been done in the meantime :). To let you take advantage of the improvements and to keep our promise to release often, we are now in the deep process of creating a QtCreator 1.1 release.

As you can see from the version number, this is not a pure bugfix release. That's why we'd like to have the opportunity to receive some last feedback from you! Have a look at the release candidate packages here:

Linux 64bit
Linux 32bit
Linux 32bit gcc3.3
Mac OS X

Some of the most prominent changes/improvements:

  • Reworked editor split mechanism, making it actually useful.
  • Function argument hint is actually useful now.
  • Improved Open Documents view, also actually useful now ;).
  • Designers signal/slot editor is finally included in the form editor.
  • Experimental support for generic Makefile based projects.
  • Lots and lots of improvements to editing, navigating, debugging, pro-file parsing, cmake support, ....

Here is a more extensive list. And of course you can browse through the commits in the git repository.

If you find issues, please report them either on the mailing list, through the Nokia/QtSoftware task tracker, or drop us a note on the #qt-creator channel on freenode.

Have a happy Easter!
