[Qt-creator] Qt creator 2.5 code autocomplete - syntax hinting - 'intellisense'

Hello again.

So what I have tried it: installed the clang and llvm packages on my ubuntu
12.04 and selected clang as my toolchain in Qt Creator but maybe I do not
notice anything really but... nothing really changed I think. Am I missing
some points here ? I realise that this has not been yet released but I
thought that something will improve by changing the toolchain to clang (in
case of code completion and/or code parsing, syntax highlighting.

Is there still somebody working on this ? I have not found more up-to-date
info about this than from February 2012.
