[Development] HEADS-UP: Qt 5.6 feature freeze and branching coming

Canvas3D has a WIP branch that is now quite stable and should be merged to dev before FF. The Canvas3D WIP branch is rewrite of some of the parts to move rendering to render thread, allow use of Qt Quick items as texture sources etc. so I'd rather do the WIP branch merge after any mass merges are done from 5.5 branch.

Is there such a mass merge in the plans?

Subject: [Development] HEADS-UP: Qt 5.6 feature freeze and branching coming

Hi all,

According to  Qt 5.6 schedule (http://wiki.qt.io/Qt-5.6-release) feature freeze & branching from 'dev' to '5.6' should happen next Monday (10.8.2015). How it seems, are we ready for FF after a week?

- Are all new modules in 'dev' already now? should be, see http://lists.qt-project.org/pipermail/development/2015-June/021809.html

- Are all mandatory new features in 'dev' now or coming in within a week?

- Are new modules & features fulfilling FF criteria, see http://wiki.qt.io/Qt5_feature_freeze

(* List of new features in Qt 5.6 seems to be quite short, see http://wiki.qt.io/New_Features_in_Qt_5.6 so it should be quite easy to do the FF ;) Or  the page needs some updates from feature/module owners...)

Is there something which prevents us to proceed as planned? Is new CI system working well enough etc? Is Qt5.git update working ok in dev?

I notice from https://codereview.qt-project.org/#/c/121238/ :
