Qt5 Beta 1 is coming to Harmattan

First of all, do not forget we still need some support for our Randa sprint.

I have just re-packaged my previous Qt5 snapshot version for the Qt5 base module last night. Having gotten the news about the beta 1 release yesterday, I have felt the urge to do so. :-) For installation, you need to do the following in your development environment (or on your phone):

* echo 'deb ./' >>/etc/apt/sources.list.d/nicks.list

* apt-get update

* fakeroot apt-get install qt5-base

Done. Unfortunately, there are some ongoing issues for the Community OBS which currently block me to get the Qt5 jsbackend and declarative modules publicly built and distributed. Just one important of those:

Hope for the declarative module to be available soon, and then we can finish the QtQuick2 branch port of the qt-components project. This means the new plugin and native event filter API usages and so forth.

As you can see, there is still a way to go, but the base is already there. :-)

Contributions warmly welcome!
