We are happy to announce the Qt Creator 3.1 RC1 release today. We have been fixing lots of bugs during the weeks since the beta, and think that we are now almost ready. So, this is the call to all of you, to give it a try, and give us some more feedback!

If you haven’t followed the beta release, I highly recommend reading the corresponding blog post for some information about the new features in Qt Creator 3.1. There are two features in 3.1 that I haven’t mentioned there, and which I’d like to highlight here:

We ship a new, experimental plugin for WinRT development (only available on Windows). You can read more about it in its own blog post here.

The iOS plugin went out of experimental state, and is enabled by default now (only available on Mac OS X). It now supports QML debugging and profiling, and many things have been fixed and tweaked, for example you can set the simulated device in your simulator run configurations now.

You find the opensource version on the Qt Project download page, and Enterprise Customers find their package in the Qt Account Portal. Please post issues in our bug tracker. You also can find us on IRC on #qt-creator on irc.freenode.net, and on the Qt Creator mailing list.

thanks for the RC! I am using the beta and I find the clang-assist very good (albeit a bit slow).

I would like to suggest to post download URLs as https, not http, or to start PGP-signing your packages.

good point, link updated!

Finally, clang semantic checker works, thanks to Nikolai’s Kosjar heroic efforts. Almost works, because precompiled header options in Project -> Clang settings is still broken: https://bugreports.qt-project.org/browse/QTCREATORBUG-10139
But it’s the first time it can be used without brain damage since wip/clang branch foundation.

A bad and important thing about debugging with QtC, but not related to QtC it self. clang has a major issue with debug info generation. You may set up a breakpoint and get many breakpoints (up to few dozens) unrelated to the line you actually wanted to break at. I reported it on llvm bugtracker, but there is yet quiet.
There is one annoying thing with debugging that actually could be fixed: https://bugreports.qt-project.org/browse/QTCREATORBUG-11404

And my favorite qbs has so many issues, i doubt anyone is using it at all. I was trying to use it from time to time on a very simple project, and all my attempts has ended with bunch of new bug report:…

A pair of words about clang autocompletion: too slow. https://bugreports.qt-project.org/browse/QTCREATORBUG-11737
And of course folks ‘.’ to ‘->’ replacement is still on it’s way.

I’m taking my chances and remind you about this one. It’s been dragging on forever, and it’s very frustrating, have to place a fake bookmark close to the end of every file i’m using, so my bookmark list is always full of such fake bookmarks: https://bugreports.qt-project.org/browse/QTCREATORBUG-10687

gyll says:

Oh, and Eike, please, please, PLEASE, do not forget about this thingie, maybe one day you’ll find a couple of hours to spare, it *really* is so tiring to focus on that list it actually gives me headaches (and i mean it literally) after a few hours of using creator: https://bugreports.qt-project.org/browse/QTCREATORBUG-10567

TT says:

Could you make Qtcreator to automatically generate the installation package for deployment for any platform(desktop & mobile) ?

Gery says:

Yayyy, it still randomly crashes 🙂

Pierre-Luc Samuel says:

I have this issue after the upgrade, can’t open projects…

Failed opening project ‘jambon.pro’: No plugin can open project type ‘text/x-artificial-QMake’.
