We are happy to announce the release of Qt Creator 3.6 Beta1.
In addition to getting many under the hood improvements and fixes, the Clang based code model now shows more detailed diagnostics in the code editor. We turned on diagnostics for many more warnings, the text is more detailed, and the code editor shows the affected code and its context in different styles. Additionally we integrated the Clang Fix-its into Qt Creator’s refactoring actions. If you haven’t already done so, you can enable the Clang code model plugin via Help > About Plugins (Qt Creator > About Plugins on OS X), and set it active for C++ file types in the C++ options (see also our documentation).
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.
This release also features a bigger contribution: The model editor plugin, which you can use to create UML-style diagrams. Many thanks to Jochen Becher! You can read more about it in our documentation. It is in experimental state, so you need to turn it on in Help > About Plugins (Qt Creator > About Plugins on OS X). After restarting you can begin with creating a new diagram set with New File or Project > Modeling > Model.
Qt Creator 3.6 brings many more enhancements and fixes. Please have a look at 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. 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.
