But it's part of the creator sources, and even shipped, but disabled, in the standalone installer. I'm not familiar with the sources though, and enabling it 'by hand' is not a supported use case :)

Thanks.  I liked this feature as it provided an easy way to add/remove 
different Qt versions.

I did a clean install of the SDK with 2.7.2 and found that out. <g>

Yes, I have 4.8.4 installed already and when I installed QtCreator, it 
found it.  It shows up under manual in the Qt versions.  Probably 
because I manually installed it before.

There are also two new entries under the automatic section for Android, 
x86 and armv7.  Both have a red icon and the details say that there is 
not a compiler installed that can support these.  How can I remove these?
