    • QTIFW-278: SDK 5.1.0 rc1 : installation over existing installation fails
  • QTBUG-28357:QML apps based on QQuickViewer are not runnable using static build of Qt 5 due to "qtquick2plugin" issue
  • QTBUG-31565: When deploying a Qt Quick Controls based application, it is currently necessary to install all the relevant qml and js files. This can be problematic on some platforms, and we plan to address this in the future.

  • QTBUG-31823: Qt 5.1.0-rc1 registration fails sometimes on windows
    • In case it pops up a message that there was an unexpected exit code of the sdktool
    • Ignore that messagebox and register Qt in QtCreator manually. Afterwards everything else should work as expected.
  • QTBUG-31786: big source package requires perl for configure.bat
    • Use the split source packages
    • Workaround: Install perl
    • Workaround: Go to qtbase and run configure there, then build module by

Mac OS X

  • Pre-build binaries can not be used for deployment to OS X 10.6

' See also QTBUG-31586:sth disabled the c11 option when build static lib on Mac ' Workaround: Compile Qt on your own, pass '-no-c+11' to configure

  • QTBUG-28336: Mac: linker warns about non-existing directories
    • Workaround: Not needed, the produced binaries work.
