I am pleased to announce that Qt 5.11 Beta 1 is released today. Convenient online binary installers are available for trying out features coming in Qt 5.11. We will follow similar Beta process as earlier and provide multiple Beta releases via the online installer.
After the Qt 5.11 Beta 1 released today we will push out multiple new Beta N releases using the online installer. With this approach it is easy for users to test the new features and provide feedback. During the beta phase we expect to have new Beta N releases with 1-2 weeks intervals. When the maturity has increased sufficiently we will create a release candidate of Qt 5.11. These will be made available directly via the online installer, we are not planning publish separate blogs for the subsequent beta releases and release candidate(s). In addition to binaries, source packages of each beta release are of course also available for those who prefer to build themselves.
I hope many of you will install the Qt 5.11 Beta releases, test and provide us your feedback to complete Qt 5.11. For any issues you may find, please submit a detailed bug report to bugreports.qt.io (please remember to mention which beta you found the issue with, check for duplicates and known issues). You are also welcome to join the discussions in the Qt Project mailing lists, developer forums and to contribute to Qt.
