Every Monday the Qt program team meets to discuss the current status for the next release. We thought it might be a good idea to share some of the results of our discussions with you.
We are now focusing on getting 4.7.0 out of the door. Today we were reviewing showstopper bugs – that means bugs with priority P0 and P1 that are not explicitly scheduled for a later release – and decided to down prioritize QTBUG-12644 and QTBUG-12611. Down prioritizing here means that we aim to get it in but won’t hold the release if we can’t make it. The fixes will then go into 4.7.1.
We are currently going through the feedback we received on 4.7.0-RC and hope you keep it coming. However, we have decided that anything that comes in after Friday will go into an early patch release, probably 4.7.1.
