Hi all,

Unfortunately we found new blocker (QTBUG-49886) from previous packages. Fixes for it is now in new packages:

Windows: http://download.qt.io/snapshots/qt/5.6/5.6.0-beta/292/

Linux: http://download.qt.io/snapshots/qt/5.6/5.6.0-beta/295/

Mac: http://download.qt.io/snapshots/qt/5.6/5.6.0-beta/229/

Src: http://download.qt.io/snapshots/qt/5.6/5.6.0-beta/latest_src/

Please test these packages to see if these are now proper beta quality. We will release these packages as Qt 5.6.0 beta at the end of this week/beginning of next one if nothing serious found during testing.

Qt5 changes since previous packages:
