[Interest] First impressions on Qt 5.5 - Unable to link with several frameworks on my current project when building for iOS

Today I have tried Qt 5.5 on my main app. 

Development version on desktop built and run just fine.

On iOS, building seemed ok (despite more than a half million warnings) but linking failed.

I’m currently linking with Parse.framework and Bolts.framework (also from Parse) and clang says : no such file or directory Bolts, but the file is there. 

Debug/.build/obj/LK.build/Debug-iphoneos/LK.build/Objects-normal/arm64/LK_dependency_info.dat -o /tmp/build-lk-iphoneos_clang_Qt_5_5_0_for_iOS-Debug/.build/obj/LK.build/Debug-iphoneos/LK.build/Objects-normal/arm64/LK
clang: error: no such file or directory: ‘Bolts'

I usually need to manually copy the additional frameworks to the iPhoneOS.framework directory and it’s already there. It was building correctly for 5.4

The most strange thing is… If I comment out the Bolts.framework, now it complains about the missing MobileCoreServices which is a Apple bundled framework, and if I comment out MobileCoreServices, it will complain about the missing AdSupport. If I comment this one out, it will compain about :-1: error: framework not found -L/Users/nsantos/Qt/5.5/ios/plugins/platforms

This is at least weird… 

Does anyone has a clue why this is happening? Feeling frustrated now.

Thanks in advance,
