Good news! I will test it.

Suggestion, would it be possible in future versions to implement as official plugin supporting NoSql databases such as mongodb?

Please, fix this https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-43558 ([Android] The splashscreen starts late and ends with a flicker) in Qt 5.9. I left simple workaround for that issue, but maybe someone from Qt devs have better idea of how to fix it properly. I don’t understand why this tasks is hanging since Qt 5.4 as it quite important, because all Android apps except based on Qt have no such annoying black flicker on start. Thanks.

Can you tell me what version of Python is needed to compile QtWebEngine. I get the following fatal compile error:

ERROR at //printing/BUILD.gn:136:22: Script returned non-zero exit code.
cups_version = exec_script(“cups_config_helper.py”,
Current dir: /home/david/qt/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-5.9.0-alpha/qtwebengine/src/core/Release/
Command: python — /home/david/qt/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-5.9.0-alpha/qtwebengine/src/3rdparty/chromium/printing/cups_config_helper.py –api-version

Thank you.

Never mind, installed some cups, package, nss, and atk. Now compiling.
