Hi all,

We have new Qt 5.2 snapshot packages now available and we would like to kindly ask your help on testing. The packages (build #159) can be found from http://download.qt-project.org/snapshots/qt/5.2/5.2.0-rc1/2013-11-20_159/ but unfortunately iOS package is not available.

Please report your testing effort via http://testresults.qt-project.org/forms/release-testing form and in case of new bugs report those in JIRA https://bugreports.qt-project.org .

We have Release Test Automation (RTA) covering many areas for Desktop platforms (http://qt-project.org/wiki/Sanity-Test-Guidelines ) but RTA coverage for Android and iOS platforms is limited. If possible please pay attention especially to those platform packages when available.

Plan is to release Qt 5.2.0 RC1 during this week and all feedback is appreciated.
