Hi there,

does this problem still exist for the currently available QtCreator 2.8.0 (pre-compiled from https://qt-project.org/downloads)?
Inside a fresh cloned repository with just the .pro and .pro.shared file, QtCreator behaves as if the .pro.shared file would not exist. Couldn't find a filed bug though.
