Hi all,

Qt 4.8.6 Release Candidate packages are available at http://download.qt-project.org/development_releases/qt/4.8/4.8.6-rc1/
Sha1 for Qt 4.8.6 is now considered frozen so please test these packages accordingly. These packages are built against sha1 215a78618b185a71f660201c902da51360d8c30d "Pass events to QGestureManager from the main (GUI) thread only".  Current version of changes file is available at http://download.qt-project.org/development_releases/qt/4.8/4.8.6-rc1/changes-4.8.6-rc1 

There has been quite many recommendations on mailing list and\or via IRC about bug fixes that should be part of Qt 4.8.6. Thank you all from those as well the patches you have made available. Unfortunately not all of the items are included to Qt 4.8.6 but this is not the last Qt 4.8 release. The initial plan is to release next Qt 4.8.7 patch release already during second half of 2014.

If blocker issues for Qt 4.8.6 release are found please report those to bugreports.qt-project.org and raise issue also on releasing at qt-project.org before Monday 7th of April.
