Why not? Sure it does.

The compiler is binary compatible. You don't have to do anything.
Thanks, what version of GCC do you recommend?

Just use the MinGW that comes with Qt for the 32-bit build. I'm not sure what the state of mingw64 is -- some have had luck, some others haven't. VS 2012, 2013, and 2015 for 64-bit have been working fine.

We will be using Dev Studio probably 2013, it hasn't been finalized yet.

Since you have confirmed it will work...  

Do you have a 
1) download this file, that includes all the packages
2) Run configure with these options.. especially for windows, to create the vcproj

I really feel stupid here.. Ive been building and using Qt for 10+ years, and never had such issues.. :(
