I'm publishing this on behalf of Henry Haverinen who is out of the office today. He will return tomorrow to address any comments.
In the name of keeping everyone informed and minimizing unwanted surprises, here are some important updates relating to the Qt 4.7 and Qt Creator 2.0 release schedule.
We are working very hard on Qt 4.7 and it is going to be fantastic. As you know, the beta launched in early May. Around that same time Nokia released the Nokia Qt SDK beta, which was a great milestone for us.
The final releases of Qt 4.7, Qt Creator 2.0 and the Nokia Qt SDK have interrelationships, and our release schedule is based around this. You may have noticed that Qt 4.6.3 was released yesterday – this Qt release, along with the upcoming Qt Creator 2.0 will form the core of the upcoming Nokia Qt SDK 1.0 release.
Qt Creator and the Qt framework each contribute their respective parts to the Qt Quick solution – QML and Qt Declarative in the Qt framework and the Qt Quick tools in Qt Creator. To make sure we´re able to deliver the mobile-specific new features in Qt Creator to the Nokia Qt SDK while also bringing the Qt Quick related features together with Qt 4.7, we´ve decided to:
In essence, this means that the first release of Qt Quick features in Qt Creator will move from version 2.0 to 2.1. Snapshots of Qt Creator 2.1 will be enabled shortly after the release of the Nokia Qt SDK, so you can continue testing the Qt Quick tooling together with Qt 4.7.
The next release after this will be Qt 4.7 moving from being a beta to a second beta – we have decided to add a second beta to the release cycle to ensure that the final Qt 4.7 release is of the best possible quality. Following the Qt 4.7 Beta II release, we will make release candidates of both Qt 4.7 and Qt Creator 2.1 available during the summer, with the final releases several weeks thereafter.
We´re looking forward to lots more great feedback on Qt 4.7 and Qt Creator 2.1.
