[Development] Qt 5.3 beta release coming soon

Without taking a stand on that item as such, Jani is right in that beta is
not supposed to be used in production. There can be regressions to earlier
functionality. New functionality should work and otherwise things should
of course be in a usable level. We are making beta directly out of stable,
so the content of items (and thus possible regressions) are not controlled
by the release team.

It is important to get beta out fast so that there is enough time for
users to comment on the new functionality and also for developers to react
to the comments and improve.

If beta-1 turns out to be bad, we make beta-2. Typically we have been able
to continue directly to RC phase.
