When using the links below, please ensure that you are not redirected to URLs which has "origin." prefixed. If you are on a
URL, you are downloading from the "master" machine, and it will be slow. Simply remove the "origin." prefix, and you should be using the CDN, and download the packages much much faster.

We are not quite sure why this redirect is happening.

Subject: [Releasing] Experimental Qt 5 installers by Digia

Hi All,

As you know we have been working in close co-operation in the Qt Project for making the installers for Qt 5 as well as the tools to create these.

If you wish, you can take a look on the experimental installers we create at: http://releases.qt-project.org/digia/

Currently the installers are built each night from the latest stable Qt 5 and placed to the above mentioned location. If the build or packaging fails, then that installer is omitted. Though called beta1, these are currently made with the latest Qt 5, which as we know has not yet reached beta maturity.

These are additional to the ones you can get from http://releases.qt-project.org/qt5.0/beta-snapshots/ In essence these should be identical. 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.

Unfortunately we can not yet provide build logs or release test results, so it may be hard to determine what is wrong based on just these. 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.
