We are glad to annouce the release of Qt Creator 2.8.1, and Qt Installer Framework 1.4.0!
You might have noticed that Qt Creator 2.8.0 never made it into the Qt online installers. That was due to some interaction between the Qt Installer Framework and Qt Creator that broke updates in some cases. But now you can rejoice, since we skip Qt Creator 2.8.0 in the online installer, and directly march to Qt Creator 2.8.1!
Qt Creator 2.8.1 contains 132 changes by 28 individual contributors. There are fixes across the board, including several crash fixes. 2.8.1 also ships updated translations for Czech, Polish, Russian and Ukrainian – thanks a lot especially for these contributions from the community! Check out the change log for more details.
Enough said … Commercial customers can download both the enterprise version of Qt Creator and the Installer Framework from the Customer Portal.
Users of the open source version can get both the binaries and the sources from http://download.qt-project.org/official_releases/qtcreator/2.8/2.8.1/ and http://download.qt-project.org/official_releases/qt-installer-framework/1.4.0 .
If you’re using the Qt online installer, you should also get both the updated version of the installer and Qt Creator 2.8.1 as an update (launch MaintenanceTool, select ‘Update components’). That’s of course also a perfect opportunity to grab Qt 5.1.1 while it’s hot, too 🙂
