Hi all,

While Qt 5.4.0 release is out and Qt 5.4.1 release is coming soon it is perfect opportunity to make first Qt 4.8.7 snapshot build available. You can find Mac and Windows installers as well as source packages from http://download.qt.io/snapshots/qt/4.8/4.8.7/2014-12-22-1/

As indicated in earlier blog post (http://blog.qt.digia.com/blog/2014/11/27/qt-4-8-x-support-to-be-extended-for-another-year/) Qt 4.8.7 is planned to be the last patch release of Qt 4.8.x series, unless there is a need to provide an update due to a critical security issue. Current plan is to have a Qt 4.8.7 release during February 2015.

There are 109 commits since Qt 4.8.6 and you can find changes in this snapshot from 4.8.7-snapshot-2014-12-22-1-changes -file (git log output) next to the installers. Please test these snapshots, report possible regressions to bugreports.qt-project.org and send email about that (with bug id) to releasing at qt-project.org<mailto:releasing at qt-project.org>. Next snapshot build will be available on early January.
