Hi, I think there something wrong with the sources package Nov 10th (I downloaded the 7z one)

1- the folder name is 'releaseexporttools_src_work_win" instead of "qt-everywhere-opensource-5.6.0"

2- the configure script in the main folder gives an error on Linux. I believe it has something to do with dos2unix carriage return. I had to copy the one from 5.5.1 to build.

3- all the submodules are missing the examples folder

I know it's still a snapshot, but I just wanted to report what I found.

Oggetto: [Development] New Qt 5.6 Beta snapshot available

Hi all,

New Qt5.6 Beta snapshot available in http://download.qt.io/snapshots/qt/5.6/5.6.0-beta/ 

Windows: http://download.qt.io/snapshots/qt/5.6/5.6.0-beta/253/ 

Linux: http://download.qt.io/snapshots/qt/5.6/5.6.0-beta/275/

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

Unfortunately these aren't yet final beta packages but should be pretty close so please test these packages and report all beta blockers immediately: We are targeting to put beta out as soon as possible, preferably already during next week. 

These packages contain now QtCreator 3.6.0-RC snapshot.

RTA testing still ongoing but according to smoke test results packages seems to be ok for wider testing

Known issues:

- https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-47958 :Issues to be fixed before Qt 5.6.0 Beta

- There might be some issues with kits in the creator: during the smoke testing some users have seen problems with compiler (auto)detection (and some users haven't)
- New tech preview components not seen in installer UI
