We are happy to announce the release of Qt Creator 4.5 Beta!
There has been very little time between the 4.4 release and the 4.5 feature freeze, but 4.5 still comes with a bunch of very nice improvements.
Locator now does fuzzy camel case matching in the same way as code completion does. Type “c andesu” in locator to open the “AndroidDebugSupport” class.
We started on making the File System navigation pane more useful. It is showing a file system tree now, and you can select the root directory from a list containing the “computer” root, your home directory, your default projects directory, and the base directories of all the projects you have open in Qt Creator. More features are to come in the future.
The configuration UI for CMake projects improved. We added grouping of configuration variables, and the option to change their type, so you can set variables to arbitrary values even if CMake reports the wrong type for them.
For a more complete list of fixes and improvements see our change log.
