Hi,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank our release team as well as all others developing Qt. 

By nature our community is distributed, but typically the developers of The Qt Company are working from an office. However, for the past weeks we all have been working almost completely from home. This sets some additional challenges to things such as automated testing, but we have been able to proceed really well. 

Being able to create full releases successfully in situation like this is a great achievement.

So big thank you to all who have been helping to make it happen.

Yours,

	Tuukka
