(5:03:53 PM) jaheikki3: Any additional item to the agenda?
(5:05:16 PM) jaheikki3: Ok, let's start from 5.4 beta status:
(5:05:53 PM) jaheikki3: Binary installers coming. Known updates to tools (ICU 53-1, msvc2013 SP3, xcode6) mostly done & hoping we could have most of packages available already tomorrow
(5:06:40 PM) jaheikki3: Maybe some fine tuning to packaging & build scripts still needed to be able to produce all packages
(5:07:00 PM) jaheikki3: Few bugs linked to beta blocker metabug (https://bugreports.qt-project.org/browse/QTBUG-41077) but most of those aren't actually beta blockers but needs to be fixed before RC
(5:07:48 PM) jaheikki3: Plan is still to have beta candidate packages available during this week & release beta during next week. 
(5:08:09 PM) jaheikki3: Reaching that will be tight but worth of trying. It would be good to get beta out before devdays... 
(5:08:27 PM) jaheikki3: Any comments or questions?
(5:09:18 PM) thiago: can't think of anything
(5:11:28 PM) jaheikki3: ok, let's hope we can get binaries out as planned.

(5:12:48 PM) iieklund_: mingw update
(5:13:05 PM) iieklund_: 4.9.1 posix dwarf rt v3 rev1, kkoehne was looking on this...

(5:14:09 PM) thiago: ok
(5:14:30 PM) iieklund_: but the mingw tc will be updated if possible
(5:14:42 PM) iieklund_: but we should hear more from kkoehne later on about that
(5:15:04 PM) thiago: yeah, discussion is on the ML
(5:15:26 PM) iieklund_: then last, the installer itself (installer-framework) will be updated to 2.0, qt5 based
(5:15:48 PM) iieklund_: but that should not affect the qt5.4 release itself
(5:16:12 PM) iieklund_: thats about all I had
(5:17:19 PM) jaheikki3: ok, thanks iikka. Does someone know something else to be updated for 5.4?
