Qt Creator 2.8.1 & Installer Framework 1.4.0 released

Published Wednesday August 28th, 2013 | by

We are glad to annouce the release of Qt Creator 2.8.1, and Qt Installer Framework 1.4.0!

You might have noticed that Qt Creator 2.8.0 never made it into the Qt online installers. That was due to some interaction between the Qt Installer Framework and Qt Creator that broke updates in some cases. But now you can rejoice, since we skip Qt Creator 2.8.0 in the online installer, and directly march to Qt Creator 2.8.1!

Qt Creator 2.8.1 contains 132 changes by 28 individual contributors. There are fixes across the board, including several crash fixes. 2.8.1 also ships updated translations for Czech, Polish, Russian and Ukrainian – thanks a lot especially for these contributions from the community! Check out the change log for more details.

The Qt Installer Framework 1.4.0 is a major update, with improved documentation, support for Qt 5, and a whole lot more!

Enough said … Commercial customers can download both the enterprise version of Qt Creator and the Installer Framework from the Customer Portal.

Users of the open source version can get both the binaries and the sources from http://download.qt-project.org/official_releases/qtcreator/2.8/2.8.1/ and http://download.qt-project.org/official_releases/qt-installer-framework/1.4.0 .

If you’re using the Qt online installer, you should also get both the updated version of the installer and Qt Creator 2.8.1 as an update (launch MaintenanceTool, select ‘Update components’). That’s of course also a perfect opportunity to grab Qt 5.1.1 while it’s hot, too :)

Does Qt Creator 2.8.1 ship with Qbs 1.1?

Christian Kandeler says:

There is no qbs 1.1 yet. Qt Creator 3.0 will have it.

Thanks for the release. :)

One thing I’ve noticed after installing Qt 5.1.1 and Qt Creator 2.8.1 using the installer: the icon displayed in the Ubuntu Launcher when Qt Creator is running is just a question mark (?). Have others noticed this as well? What can I do to display the Qt Creator icon?

C says:

Hello
I have noticed the same thing. Whether I use the installer or recompile the whole source code, I cannot get the Qt Creator icon to appear correctly on the launcher since this last new release, its rather bothering.
If you find how to fix it pls let me know !

Kai Koehne says:

Weird. Looks fine in the start menu of my OpenSUSE / KDE box. Is it still a question mark after you logged out, and then logged in again?

Please file a bug for this …

Good job! 2.8.0 Crashs a lot specially when you are deploying to an Android device. I hope it has been fixed in 2.8.1.
