[17:01:13] <jaheikki3> Time to start qt release team meeting

[17:01:17] <carewolf_home> pong

[17:01:19] <jaheikki3> On agenda today:

[17:01:23] <jaheikki3> Qt 6.5 status

[17:01:26] <jaheikki3> Qt 6.6 status

[17:01:34] <jaheikki3> Any additional item to the agenda?

[17:02:53] <jaheikki3> Let's start from Qt 6.5 status

[17:03:24] <jaheikki3> Qt 6.5.0 released 3.4.2023

[17:03:54] <thiago> jaheikki3: pong

[17:04:08] <jaheikki3> Seems to be quite solid release; at least I haven't get reports from anything that critical

[17:04:40] <jaheikki3> Qt 6.5.1 preparations started and first snapshot created

[17:04:53] <jaheikki3> RTA for that ongoing

[17:05:05] <vohi> a few regressions in 6.5.0 that we are working on, but nothing world-breaking as far as I have seen

[17:05:08] <thiago> I haven't seen any major reports on 6.5,9 either

[17:05:11] <thiago> 6.5.0

[17:05:17] <thiago> there were reports, but nothing major

[17:05:50] <jaheikki3> sounds good

[17:06:23] <jaheikki3> the plan is to start branching from '6.5' to '6.5.1' at the beginning of May and release Qt 6.5.1 10th May

[17:07:03] <jaheikki3> that's all about Qt 6.5 status at this time. Any comments or questions?

[17:08:25] <jaheikki3> Ok, then Qt 6.6 status

[17:09:23] <jaheikki3> Qt 6.6 platform and module freeze milestone will be 19th may so only a month left to get all new modules in

[17:10:22] <jaheikki3> And Qt 6.6 feature freeze will be in effect 2nd June

[17:11:13] <jaheikki3> Qt 6.6 snapshot available in online installer. It is updated pretty reqularly, last time 15th April

[17:11:59] <jaheikki3> That's pretty much all at this time. Any comments or questions?

[17:12:25] <vohi> there's a whatsnew66.qdoc file already in the qtdoc repo, good to keep that up-to-date as new stuff merges

[17:12:56] <jaheikki3> yep

[17:13:31] <vohi> and the 6.5 header review has been an unusually painful process. Shout-out to Marc for doing a heroic effort reviewing and fixing things and chasing after folks, but perhaps there are things we can improve. Will send a mail to the mailing list in a bit to ask for "retrospective" input

[17:13:52] <thiago> I need to finish the IPC stuff that was merged

[17:14:55] <jaheikki3> vohi: totally agree and it would be good to get that improved somehow

[17:16:19] <jaheikki3> Ok, it was all at this time so let's end this meeting now and have new one Tue 2nd May; I can't join next week

[17:16:34] <jaheikki3> Thanks for your participation, bye!

[17:16:46] <vohi> ok, thanks!
