We have contributed all the changes we made, so that part should be same.

Are these installers based on the Qt installer framework? If so, are there any
differences in the framework code itself, or is it just the build system and
build scripts which are different?

Best regards,

Though called beta1, these are currently made with the latest Qt 5, which as we know has not yet reached beta maturity.

While we cook with the same recipes, these are baked in our kitchen that has some differences to the Qt Project build machines. So sometimes there are differences in the created installers as well. Having two different setups is good in verifying that the recipes really work and that there are not too many 'secret ingredients' in either one of the cookings.

Also we are not running any automated tests to these installers like we do for the Qt 4.8 ones, so there may well be whatever regressions in these. So please regard these as experimental installers that they are.
