Qt Creator 4.2.1 released

Published on Monday January 23, 2017 by Eike Ziller in QtCreator Releases Biz Circuit & Dev Loop | Comments

We are happy to announce the release of Qt Creator 4.2.1. This is a pure bugfix release, and takes care of various important bugs.

Several properties of run configurations were only initialized when entering the Projects
mode, leading to various issues when running QMake projects, and projects that run custom executables, which have now been fixed.

In 4.2 we fixed iOS Simulator support for Xcode 8. Unfortunately there still were
problems, especially when running on iOS 10 simulator devices.
We adapted the way we start applications on the simulator, and this should now reliably
work again.

There have been a range of smaller bug fixes as well, please have a look at our change log
for more details.

Get Qt Creator 4.2.1

The opensource version is available on the Qt download page, and you find commercially licensed packages on the Qt Account Portal. Qt Creator 4.2.1 is also available through an update in the online installer. Please post issues in our bug tracker. You can also find us on IRC on #qt-creator on, and on the Qt Creator mailing list.
