Yeah, for me this seems to be quite low risky addition as well. Only concern is that we need to delay the Alpha release because of this late addition. We have Alpha content in place already now and at least in theory we should delay it until all new features are in... So adding 2 weeks delay to there doesn't sound that nice to me at this point.; delays are usually causing problems & unnecessary hassle later phases of releasing :( And taking this in between Alpha and beta doesn't sound that well to me either; what is the purpose of Alpha if there isn't all known features in...

Why this is so important that we should get the exception & go in after FF?

I’d be ok with extending the deadline for this one item until end of next week. It shouldn’t be able to break other things as far as I can tell.

But would like to hear Jani’s opinion as well. If he’s also ok go ahead, but it really needs to get approved and merged quickly.

HeaderView is almost done but I just missed the feature-freeze. I will have it ready by this Friday.

So, is it OK for everybody that I merge it after the 5.15 feature freeze. It's here https://codereview.qt-project.org/c/qt/qtquickcontrols2/+/270170

Hi all,

Qt 5.15 Feature Freeze is in effect now. So no new features in '5.15' anymore. Please update Qt 5.15 new features page (https://wiki.qt.io/New_Features_in_Qt_5.15) now; it seems to be quite empty still...

Target is to publish Qt 5.15 Alpha as soon as possible; Let's see if we can get it out already during this week.

API review for Qt 5.15 will start soon as well. Please do reviews immediately when available.
