Fine, but I don't want its point of view :) previous file-view was ok!

Or use patched cmake, or use patched QtC.

Such a sad thing.

More unfortunate for you: I've talked to colleagues today, 5 of them 
uses QtC for development (others MSVS or XCode) - all of them says new 
view is awful for our project. Such a coincedence...

Please, leave old file tree view - ok, if you want to move entirely to 
server-mode - please, make plain file tree available somehow - it would 
be well acceptable solution! If it can be done, i'll create issue and 
will collect votes for it :)

Project tree with sub and sub-sub folders, setting with 
set_target_properties(${target_list} PROPERTIES FOLDER

QtC is the best IDE, just do not break it, and it will be fine ;)
