Thank you for your answer.

It was not working from at least 05:00 GMT to 06:00 GMT. It was working 
again at 08:00 GMT. Login.qt.io wasn't working from either the 
Maintainance Tool or the browser. Blog.qt.io wasn't working from the 
browser. The main webpage www.qt.io was working though.

Good to know that you don't need to login to download and install if you 
have a commercial license, at least this makes some sort of sense. 
Still, I find it questionable to force non-commercial users to login, 
this is highly non-standard for open source products.

Have a good day :-)
