Qt Creator 4.14 Beta released

We are happy to announce the release of Qt Creator 4.14 Beta!

The biggest change in Qt Creator 4.14 is one that you hopefully won't notice: We switched the build of our packages completely to the CMake build system! Other changes behind the scenes include adaptations to the code needed for building Qt Creator with Qt 5 and Qt 6, which is still an ongoing process. But here follows a summary of functionality fixes and changes:

C++ Support

We continued with lots of fixes and additions for the C++ code model and refactoring support, small and not quite so small.

Your C++ code is now automatically analyzed with Clazy and Clang-Tidy while typing again.


A note to all who use variables for external tools and configuration items: We renamed the "CurrentProject:*" variables to "CurrentDocument:Project:*", which better reflects their semantics. Please start using the new names as the old ones will be removed at some point.

If you had issues with opening qmake-based projects because "system" functions are executed: This functionality can now be turned off.


We switched the default help viewer backend to use litehtml, so the default display of help in Qt Creator is much nicer. There were many other fixes, for Android support, version control integration, and in other areas. Have a look at our change log for a more detailed list.
