This is the wiki where we plan to keep the operative information about how we work towards releasing Qt 5.0.0.

Regular updates

Status updates for the release will be sent on a weekly basis to the release mailinglist.


The backlog of all issues that people has accepted (open or in progress) to be fixed for Qt 5.0.0 can be found in Jira.

Please help us by making sure your tasks are on this list (and that the ones you don't plan on doing are not). This is done by setting "Fix version = 5.0.0 [beta 2/RC 1/(Next Major Release)]", and ensuring that it is open or in progress.
