I am pleased to announce that the second patch release of Qt 5.12 LTS, the Qt 5.12.2 is released today. While not adding new features, the Qt 5.12.2 release provides a number of bug fixes and other improvements.

Compared to Qt 5.12.1, the new Qt 5.12.2 contains more than 250 bug fixes. For details of the most important changes, please check the Change files of Qt 5.12.2.

With Qt 5.12.2 we bring back widely asked MinGW 32 bit prebuild binaries in addition to 64 bit ones.

Qt 5.12 LTS will receive many more patch releases throughout the coming years and we recommend all active developed projects to migrate to Qt 5.12 LTS. Qt 5.9 LTS is currently in ‘Strict’ phase and receives only the selected important bug and security fixes, while Qt 5.12 LTS is currently receiving all the bug fixes. With Qt 5.6 Support ending in March 2019 all active projects still using Qt 5.6 LTS should now migrate to a later version of Qt.

Qt 5.12.2 is available via the maintenance tool of the online installer. For new installations, please download latest online installer from Qt Account portal or from qt.io Download page. Offline packages are available for commercial users in the Qt Account portal and at the qt.io Download page for open-source users. You can also try out the Commercial evaluation option from the qt.io Download page.

Since 5.11.3 from the end of November? So, the whole 3 months.

Linking to change files in this manner is not useful. They all contain the same 20 line banner. There should be a script that includes the banner once and appends all the unique content.

Thank you for 32bit MinGW prebuilt binaries. Now I can migrate to 5.12.

Unfortunately, 32-bit seems to still reign supreme in the Windows world. Creating both a 32-bit as well as a 64-bit version of your application doesn’t make sense if the 32-bit one works perfectly fine everywhere.

Thanks for bringing it back.

Thanks you, one that bug was making me crazy got solved 🙂

As always i say the same, would be nice to offer a torrent link to download it.
The torrent could contain the http/ftp links to different mirrors, and would help to balance the download pressure between users.
You could also upload it to keybase, with a trusted account, and add it to the mirrors.

I could create one as a test but i have already too many things in my TODO list 🙂

Hi, in the following link to download the 5.12.2 offline installers

Both Linux and macOS installers are 64 bit.

But the Windows installer is 32 bit.

May I check if there is a 64 bit Windows installer?
