Hi all,

We have finally first snapshots for Qt 5.3 Beta available here: http://download.qt-project.org/snapshots/qt/5.3/5.3.0-beta/2014-03-12_5/ . Unfortunately there is only Linux ones & few for windows. We are hoping we could get more windows ones soon, maybe even today. Mac installers are also under work, let's see if we can produce those already today...

Please try existing ones, verify your fixes & report your new findings to Jira.
