Meeting minutes from Qt Release Team meeting 17th October 2017
Qt 5.10 status:
- Beta 1 released a week ago
- Target to get beta 2 out as soon as possible. Unfortunately we haven't been able to get qt5.git integrated since beta1
* Remaining issue: QTBUG-63724 QtMultimedia build failed because of 'virtual memory range for PCH exceeded' during qt5.git integration in '5.10'
** This is only known blocker for beta2
** Fix proposal available (https://codereview.qt-project.org/#/c/208497/)
- Target is to announce soft string freeze during this week and have official string freeze a week after that
- Target start branching from '5.10' -> 5.10.0 quite soon, current estimate at the beginning of November
- API review fixes are in progress; needs to be in before RC
* RC blocker list here: https://bugreports.qt.io/issues/?filter=18957
Next meeting Tue 31st October 16:00 CET

[17:08:58] <frkleint> thiago: Has this move of qStartsWIth & etc into a namespace been sorted?
[17:09:14] <thiago> frkleint: no
[17:09:37] <thiago> I've been busy with QRandomGenerator API
[17:09:42] <frkleint> that would be a a blocker for branching 5.10.0
[17:09:44] <frkleint> ?
[17:10:17] <frkleint> ok, so to speak, API is still in flux
[17:10:23] <frkleint> for various classes
[17:10:32] <thiago> yes
[17:10:40] <thiago> API review fixes are in progress
[17:10:56] <jaheikki3> ok, that should be sorted out quite soon
[17:11:00] <thiago> thanks for reminding of the qstringfunctions.h one
[17:11:05] -*- thiago starts a change so he won't forget
[17:11:07] <frkleint> np ;-)
[17:11:19] <thiago> qstringalgorithsm.h
[17:11:20] <jaheikki3> thanks thiago and frkleint!
[17:12:06] <jaheikki3> ongoing API review fixes aren't blocking beta n but are blocking RC of course

[17:13:51] <jaheikki3> It was pretty much all about Qt 5.10 status now. Any other comments or questions?
[17:14:36] <frkleint> Will this WEbKit be part of the official release -
[17:14:43] <frkleint> we had some unclarity here...
[17:14:59] <jaheikki3> frkleint: no, webkit isn't part of release
