Qt Creator 3.6.0 released

We are happy to announce the release of Qt Creator 3.6.0.

This release includes a big contribution: An editor for UML-style diagrams. It is in experimental state and needs to be turned on through Help > About Plugins > ModelEditor. Since it features too many diagram types and element styles to even scratch on in this blog post, I'll not even try and just refer you to the documentation. Many thanks to Jochen Becher!

Clang Fix-it integrationThe Clang based C/C++ code model received many improvements. The Clang Fix-its are now integrated into Qt Creator's refactoring actions. We turned on more warnings, and show the warning or error and the context in which it occurs in different styles. You can configure which warnings are shown in the C++ > Code Model options.

Qt Quick Designer now has an action for switching between a .ui.qml file and the usage in the corresponding .qml file, similar to the Switch Source/Form action in Qt Designer for widgets. We also made the previously commercial-only connection editor and path editor available to all users.

QMake projects got a build configuration type for profiling (release with separate debug symbols). CMake projects got build configuration types for Debug, Release, ReleaseWithDebugInfo and MinSizeRelease. On OS X you can now choose if Qt Creator should consider the file system as case-sensitive or case-insensitive (Preferences > Environment > System). There have been many more improvements and fixes. Please refer to our change log for a more detailed overview.

You find the opensource version on the Qt download page, and commercially licensed packages on the Qt Account Portal. If you are evaluating Qt you can go straight to http://www.qt.io/download/. 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.

Note: Starting with Qt Creator 3.6 we no longer provide prebuilt binaries for Linux 32-bit. Building Qt Creator on that platform is still supported though.
