Kindly reminder: According to schedule we should have Qt 5.10 feature freeze
after a week, see https://wiki.qt.io/Qt_5.10_Release. So it is time to do
remaining finalizations to 5.10 new features now and focus to bug fixing after
that. Please fill new features page now as well
(https://wiki.qt.io/New_Features_in_Qt_5.10); it seems to be quite empty at the
And we should start soft branching today. But as Frederik informed yesterday we
are planning to do some changes to coin infrastructure during this week (see
let's postpone the start of soft branching a bit and do it after coin infra
changes are in & working. Doing one more branch just now makes these coin
changes more difficult & most probably causes more delays in the future.
So the plan with 5.10 is following:
1. Let's keep the agreed ff as it is (8.8.2017)
2. Get first 5.10 binary snapshot from 'dev' out as soon as possible
3. Start soft branching (from 'dev' to '5.10') immediately after coin infra
changes are in & every branch ('5.6', 5.9' & 'dev') is working ok with infra
4. Finalize branching (~ a week from soft branching)
5. Release Qt 5.10 alpha as soon as possible after the branching. We should be
able to do this quite quickly; As usual Alpha will be src packages only and we
can already create needed ones from 'dev'.
* Most probably we should be able to deliver binary snapshot with alpha as
well. If not just at same time then quite soon after the release...
