Well. This thread is getting a bit OT. Let me bring it back a little. :)

My experience with Qt 5 with Mac is generally good. The only major 
issues for me right now is the window title focus bug and detached dock 
widget can't be reattached. I have to changed the app behavior to work 
around the later but can't do anything about the former.


The only issue in writing the code is Creator doesn't recognize that I 
am using libc++ and still looks for header in GCC locations. But that's 
not Qt 5 itself.

BTW. If anyone wants to use C++11 features with Qt 5 Mac, I strongly 
recommend installing Clang 3.1 via MacPorts. It doesn't have any of the 
odd restriction as Apple's (can't use libc++ with 10.6). It's more 
inline with official clang version/features. And it still support most 
if not all Apple-ism.
