If you are still developing in a feature branch, please merge to dev as soon as possible. Unless you are already aiming to Qt 5.11, that is.

We should avoid "last minute" merges as these are likely to cause problems.

Subject: [Development] Qt 5.10 Feature Freeze is coming

Hi all!

Just a kindly reminder: Qt 5.10 Feature Freeze date is 8.8.2017 so there isn't really more than 2 months time left to get new features in (see https://wiki.qt.io/Qt_5.10_Release ).

We kept final schedule with Qt 5.9.0 and we need to continue that with Qt 5.10. So if you already now see that some feature won't be ready early enough please postpone it to 5.11 instead.

Please make sure all new features are visible in new feature page (https://wiki.qt.io/New_Features_in_Qt_5.10)  as soon as possible. Please also make sure new features are fulfilling ff criteria (https://wiki.qt.io/Qt_5_Feature_Freeze). And make sure all new modules are in qt5.git early enough, at this time latest at the end of June (also possible new Technology Preview ones): FF is immediately after summer holiday period and we need to create configurations etc for those as well before FF. That's why we need to get new modules in qt5.git as early as possible.

At the moment I don't know any new module for Qt 5.10. If there will be some please inform me immediately with details(we can start preparations for those already now):
   - Module name & repository
   - Officially supported/TP
   - Description for installer
   - Supported platforms
   - etc

And also inform me if some already existing module change it's state (e.g TP->officially supported, deprecated etc)
