I really hope this means we'll go back to the old good times when we had only one 5.x folder with the latest and greatest minor release.Now is just ridiculously, I have five 5.9.x, 5.10.0, two 5.11.x and two 5.12.x folders, but NONE has the latest minor version.
IMHO all 5.x.y release should go by default in 5.x folder and if an user really want to use a specific version he can install it from "archive" folder.

Yes, this would be the case for Qt. Tools etc as well, of course also offered. Under preview now is Qt 5.13 beta (alpha is removed from preview already with the current online installer, only the latest preview is offered).

    I'm understanding correctly:
    * 5.13 alpha in the 'preview' category
    * 5.12.latest / 5.11.latest / 5.9.latest as ordinary installation
    * All the other 5.12, 5.11 and 5.9 as archive
    Is this correct?
