We are happy to announce the release of Qt IFW 3.0.2.

3.0.2 is a bug fix release, here are some of the main fixes:

  • Add possibility to reopen admin query –  Previously in Windows you had 2 minutes to answer to the admin query if installer requested one. If query was not answered within the time frame, installer aborted. Now you have ability to reopen the admin query and continue install.
  • Implement package download resume – package downloads now recover after network failures from the same position, which helps installations of large packages over flaky networks. The download resume also works after switching a network connection or even after resuming a computer from suspended power-save state. This fix was contributed by Ville Voutilainen.
  • Do not reset core when pressing ‘Restart’ – This enables to restart the installer with the same command line arguments.

The full list of bug fixes can be found from ChangeLog.

Sources and precompiled binaries for the Installer Framework are available at download.qt.io (open source), or in your Qt Account. The binaries are built with Qt 5.9.0.

The download resume is a fairly significant improvement, it seems like almost every user has run into the problem at some point. I ran into it when installing Boot2Qt, I started the installation, commuted home, thought “hmm, did that installation finish before I suspended?” and realized it didn’t. A teammate of mine ran into it when his computer suspended even though wi-fi traffic was flowing. There are reports according to which some Qt users have trouble installing Qt because they are located in places where broadband internet access is not available, so this fix should help their installations quite a bit.

Agreed; the download resume feature sounds like a godsend! Kudos to the Qt-IFW team.

Lack of broadband isn’t the only obstacle. The quality of the mirrors do differ significantly too; for example, a user in China reported that the China mirrors are slow: http://lists.qt-project.org/pipermail/interest/2013-December/010336.html

Would you like to introduce ifw plugin support in QtCreator?
