Hi all,

Qt5.git integration in 'dev' succeed during the weekend and we have soft branched '5.8' from 'dev'. It means Qt 5.8 Feature Freeze will be effect 15th August 2016 as well as final branching from 'dev' to '5.8'

So please start using '5.8' for changes targeted to Qt 5.8 release and finalize ongoing ones in 'dev'. Final downmerge from 'dev' to '5.8' will happen Monday 15th Aug (morning).

Please make sure

- All new modules for Qt 5.8 are in 'dev' & part of qt5.git

- All mandatory new features are in 'dev' now or coming in within a week?

- New feature page contains all new features etc: https://wiki.qt.io/New_Features_in_Qt_5.8

We will create first src packages from latest qt5.git integration as soon as possible. Please check the packages immediately when available to see if something important is missing. Those packages should be quite close to Qt 5.8 alpha packages so it will be really important to check the packages now.
