Qt Creator 3.5 beta1 released

We are happy to announce the release of Qt Creator 3.5 beta1.


In this release we added highlights to the editor scroll bar, which allow you to quickly see where bookmarks, breakpoints, and search results are located in your document.

If you are working with C++, you'll be happy to find many fixes for our code model. The Clang-based model backend received a major refactoring: We moved the actual work into a separate process, which should make us safer from bugs in Clang itself. Also, our binary packages got upgraded to use Clang 3.6.

On the Qt Quick side I have to notify you that we removed support for Qt Quick 1, from Qt Quick Designer. We also removed the Qt Quick 1 wizards, and support for profiling with V8. The visual designer for Qt Quick 2, the code editor for Qt Quick 1 and 2, and profiling of Qt Quick 2 from Qt 5.2 and later and of Qt Quick 1 are not affected.

We also removed support for BlackBerry 10 development, lacking a maintainer. QNX development is not affected by this.

There have been many changes for Android support, including fixes for Android M and 64bit. On OS X we added a locator filter that uses Spotlight as a backend for finding files on your whole file system. For CMake projects we added support for file targets when they are explicitly specified in the generated CodeBlocks file. There were many more feature additions and bug fixes. Please have a look at our changes file if you are interested in more.

You find the opensource version on the Qt download page, and Enterprise packages on the Qt Account Portal. Please post issues in our bug tracker. You can also find us on IRC on #qt-creator on irc.freenode.net, and on the Qt Creator mailing list.
