It's arriving a bit late but the first alpha release of Qt 5.10 is now available for testing.

Qt developers for the 5.10 update have been working on their initial Vulkan helper support, OpenGL ES 3.2 now being exposed in a cross-platform manner, Qt Quick / Qt Quick Controls 2 improvements, Qt WebEngine was rebased to Chromium 60, support for multiple screens and plugins with the emulator, and more.

New modules for Qt 5.10 provide Qt Network Authentication and Qt Speech. Technology preview modules for 5.10 are Qt Remote Objects and Qt WebGL Streaming.

More details on the Qt 5.10 Alpha via blog.qt.io.

Qt 5.10 was supposed to be released at the end of August but just came out today. Meanwhile, Qt 5.10 Beta is expected on 5 October, but no word yet if that will be pushed back. The developers are still planning to officially release Qt 5.10.0 around the end of November.
