QtC-4.12 is not available in the 'Preview' components of the
installer, the only option there is 4.11.0-rc1. I guess that's
outdated stuff.

I might try it, but I feel nervous, switching back and forth b/w QtC
versions tend to break your config files. I can run QtC with a custom
config dir, but then i'll have to configure all my toolchains, etc..
which is a (bit of a) pain in my case.

Downloading http://download.qt.io/snapshots/qtcreator/4.12/4.12.0-beta1/248/
right now, will see how far i can go with that.

But my point was quite simple:
QtC 4.11 is broken, and has been released untested (or was knowingly
buggy), it doesn't seem to be anywhere near release quality (or i'm
really unlucky).
As an Open Source user i would accept that, but this is not acceptable
as a commercial user.
I am not a beta-tester, I am a client (well my employer is the client
really) *buying* a product and associated services. Which entitled me
(i think it's fair) to have quality expectation.

My apologies to the whole technical team for all the bad words, but
i'm quite upset on that one.
I'm pretty sure the problem lies in the business/management layer, not
the engineering one.
