I'd release Qt Creator 2.5.1 tomorrow.
This release is still built with the "legacy" build setup, not yet with builds.qt-project.org.

Which brings me to the topic:
Qt Creator 2.6 beta wouldn't be far in the future from now, but the Qt Creator setup at builds.qt-project.org doesn't create installers for Windows + Linux yet, but only 7zips. It would be great to build TheRealThing(tm) on builds.qt-project.org though. The old setup uses Bitrock, so we can't just take what is there. But the SDK also contains a (hopefully?) working IFW component for Qt Creator.
Who could help with creating installers?
