Qt 4.7 Beta2 and Qt Creator 2.1 Snapshots Available

Qt 4.7.0 Beta2 is now available for download from the Qt Download Page. Source packages (.zip and .tar.gz format) and binary packages (for Mac Cocoa, Mac Carbon, MinGW 4.4.0 and Visual Studio 2008) are available.

Note the naming change of Mac packages compared to Qt 4.6.x has been repeated in this second beta. This reflects the fact that Cocoa is now the primary Mac platform for Qt. Binary packages for Carbon will be discontinued from Qt 4.8 onwards, but will continue to be shipped for the remainder of the 4.7.x series.

The purpose of this second Beta release is to allow the scope change of Qt Multimedia as well as provide a better base to produce a good quality public 4.7.0 release candidate.

We´re also making snapshots of Qt Creator 2.1 available today. Used together with Qt 4.7 Beta2, these snapshots provide a full preview of Qt Quick. Qt Creator 2.1 includes an early preview of the Qt Quick Designer, as well as support for working with Qt Quick projects, and editing and debugging QML code. Snapshots are available for download from

For those using the public git repository, a “v4.7.0-beta2″ tag will appear soon.
