The Qt Creator 2.5.0 final has been released! There are lots of new features and improvements in this release, I’ll highlight a few here, some others are probably already mentioned in our beta blog post, and you’ll find a more complete list in our changes file.
So, new features and improvements include but are not limited to:
Note for Windows MinGW Users
We decided to remove the custom MinGW distribution and MinGW gdb from our Qt Creator-only Windows binary distribution package. The original reasons to include it there (it was the predecessor of the Qt SDK) are since a while now filled by the Qt SDK. Also, updating the shipped version is a legal hassle as long as the binaries are provided through Nokia, but we also don’t want to ship stone age versions. We are working on build infrastructure for the Qt Project itself though, that we ultimately want to use to build Qt Creator packages, snapshots, and more. Currently, on http://builds.qt-project.org, you find Qt Creator snapshots for Linux and Windows, and also a Python enabled MinGW gdb (that reportedly doesn’t work on Windows XP). It’s still possible to install MinGW and gdb separately and register them in Qt Creator. We are not removing the support for it from Qt Creator.
Previously shipped MinGW: ftp://ftp.qt.nokia.com/misc/MinGW-gcc440_1.zip
Previously shipped MinGW gdb: ftp://ftp.qt.nokia.com/misc/gdb/7.2/qtcreator-gdb-7.2-mingw-x86.zip
Up to date MinGW: http://www.mingw.org (we might provide a compact version like the one in the old installer later)
Python enabled MinGW gdb 7.4: http://builds.qt-project.org/job/gdb-windows/ (compiled on Windows 7, doesn’t work on Windows XP)
