Hi, shouldn't the entries in your .qrc file look like:

...
<file>html/open.png</file>
<file>html/doxygen.png</file>
<file>html/tab_h.png</file>
<file>html/files.html</file>
...

because that .qrc file is in the subdirectory "release"?

(Or the other way around, if you want to keep the original .qrc file, 
create another "release" subdirectory below the first one and move the 
files down to that, i.e.
ls -l release/release/html
