[17:02:36] <jaheikki3> Qt5.5 beta status
[17:02:58] <jaheikki3> Qt 5.4.2 status

[17:04:16] <carewolf> png
[17:04:56] <jaheikki3> OK, lets start from Qt5.5 Beta status:
[17:05:21] <jaheikki3> qt5.git integration finally succeed in '5.5'!
[17:06:10] <jaheikki3> New packaging round ongoing, we should have new packages for testing tomorrow morning
[17:06:42] <thiago> great
[17:06:52] <jaheikki3> Most of blockers from https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-44653 should be fixed in those packages
[17:07:34] <fkleint> grain of salt, though, we hit on this BIC test failures https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-45864
[17:08:08] <jaheikki3> :(
[17:08:45] <jaheikki3> thiago: time to check that one soon?
[17:08:49] <thiago> looking at it now
[17:08:58] <jaheikki3> great
[17:09:36] <jaheikki3> Target is to start full test round tomorrow. Hoping packages are in good shape & no new beta blockers found
[17:10:20] <jaheikki3> Target is to get beta out during next week
[17:10:29] <jaheikki3> Any comments / questions?
[17:11:14] <thiago> just a note:
[17:11:19] <thiago> the QtDBus changes won't be in 5.5
[17:11:29] <thiago> I'll ask ossi to retarget them back to dev
[17:12:03] <thiago> I won't be pursuing the notify() changes either. It's a been bug since Qt 4.0.
[17:12:07] <ossi|tt> oh, they still aren't in. that would explain why my mac build two days ago broke.
[17:12:51] <jaheikki3> OK
[17:12:54] <thiago> how would not doing something explain why something broke?
[17:13:35] <ossi|tt> well, it's currently broken in certain configs
[17:13:46] <thiago> yeah, and no one has bothered to fix them
[17:13:51] <thiago> I've been asking for 3 months
[17:14:00] <thiago> the configure -help and -pkg-config changes depend on that
[17:14:41] <thiago> I'll try to get someone to fix them when I'm in Oslo
[17:15:32] <jaheikki3> Then Qt 5.4.2 status:
[17:16:30] <jaheikki3> - tst_menu is broken & it was preventing us to integrate stuff in '5.4.2'
[17:17:59] <jaheikki3> - simon studied the test & make the decision to blacklist it
[17:18:01] <carewolf> gunnar sletta wants the revert of JPEG orientation into 5.4.2
[17:18:24] <carewolf> https://codereview.qt-project.org/#/c/111375/
[17:19:38] <jaheikki3> carewolf: OK. We have qt5.git integration ongoing but new one is still needed. So that change could be taken in...
[17:20:22] <jaheikki3> At least qtbase changes file needs to be in as well
[17:20:49] <jaheikki3> Otherwise most of important change files are in & no blockers know at the moment
[17:20:56] <thiago> there is one new:
[17:21:03] <thiago> we need to remove the automatic use of -Bsymbolic
[17:21:10] <thiago> GCC 5 broke it and they call it our fault
[17:21:51] <ossi|tt> how considerate of them ^^
[17:21:52] <w00t> thiago: got a bug report or something?
[17:22:12] <thiago> two or three
[17:22:34] <jaheikki3> thiago: Is there bug report about that issue? Would be nice to get it linked in blocker metabug (https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-44881)
[17:22:34] <thiago> QTBUG-45755, QTBUG-45760, https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=65886
[17:22:48] <jaheikki3> thiago: thanks!
[17:23:08] <thiago> I've reopened 45755 now
[17:23:14] <w00t> thanks
[17:24:42] <jaheikki3> Ok, hoping we will get that fixed soon
[17:25:07] <thiago> someone please do it, since I am extremely busy
[17:25:31] <jaheikki3> Target is to create new packages for testing when qt5.git integration succeed
[17:26:47] <jaheikki3> thiago: I'll try to find someone to fix that issue
[17:28:35] <thiago> it's just a matter of removing the auto in configure
[17:29:37] <jaheikki3> ok, I think that is enough from 5.4.2 at this time
[17:29:48] <jaheikki3> Then Qt 4.8.7 Status
[17:29:54] <jaheikki3> akseli: ^^
[17:29:58] <akseli> New Qt 4.8.7 snapshot build available http://download.qt.io/snapshots/qt/4.8/4.8.7/2015-04-28-8/ with preliminary changes-4.8.7 file (changes-4.8.7-2015-04-28-8.txt)
[17:30:05] <akseli> Snapshot is build against current HEAD (SHA-1: ec701869f5c7f70608e71331223b22454c3a3e4c OSX: avoid crash in invalidateBuffer_resizeHelper on parentless widget)
[17:30:11] <akseli> Changes list (git log) available as well http://download.qt.io/snapshots/qt/4.8/4.8.7/2015-04-28-8/4.8.7-snapshot-2015-04-28-8-all-changes.txt
[17:30:16] <akseli> Before release candidate packages we should get "QNAM: Fix upload corruptions when server closes connection" https://codereview.qt-project.org/111363 review and integration
[17:30:23] <akseli> Any comments \ questions?
[17:32:43] <fkleint> akseli; Any chances of a 4.8.7/ VS2013 package?
[17:32:49] <fkleint> as discussed last time?
[17:33:28] <akseli> unfortunately i haven't had time to look after vs2013 package but i try to find time
[17:33:43] <fkleint> oki..makes it easier for people to port..
[17:35:05] <jaheikki3> I think that was pretty much all at this time
[17:35:24] <jaheikki3> Ok to have next meeting Tue 5.5 at this same time?
[17:35:42] <akseli> +1
[17:35:47] <fkleint> Hey - we just have to release 5.5B on 5.5!
