Hello! Great news!
So, does 5.8 version include bearing and tilt feature in QML Map component?
If not, which version will include these features?

Great to have a RC of 5.8 right now.
I just download it and try it,…
BUT: did not compile on MacOS Sierra (10.12) with XCode 8.1
Maybe some old definitions there by using 10.11 sdk?

So also try to add following to my pro file:
macx {
QMAKE_MAC_SDK = macosx10.12
Here is the compile error output, hope you guys can help me to get this working
clang: warning: no such sysroot directory: ‘/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Platforms/MacOSX.platform/Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.11.sdk’

Could you please create a bug report with the full build log (of a build without the modification of QMAKE_MAC_SDK)?

Jorgen says:

Great job!

Sandro F says:

Well, please fix https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-46747 before releasing 5.8.0. With this issue iOS Applications are not really useable.

Przemysław Nogaj says:

Great! BTW. I still remember when we had 5.0 – now it is 5.8, soon we will have 5.9 probably, what’s next? Is there some place where you can find road map for next major release? Will it bring same amount of changes like 4.0 and 5.0 did?

After Qt 5.9 comes Qt 5.10. There is a feature release of Qt every 6 months. Release information is available in the wiki: https://wiki.qt.io/Main
