The Qt blog has announced some
changes in how the Qt toolkit is offered to consumers. Notably,
installation of Qt binaries will require a Qt Account and
long-term-supported (LTS) releases and the offline installer will become
available to commercial licensees only. “From February onward, everyone, including open-source Qt users, will require valid Qt accounts to download Qt binary packages. We changed this because we think that a Qt account lets you make the best use of our services and contribute to Qt as an open-source user.
We want open-source users to help improve Qt in one form or another, be that through bug reports, forums, code reviews, or similar. These are currently only accessible from a Qt account, which is why having one will become mandatory.”

Git 2.25 has been released. This blog
post looks at “partial clone support” and “sparse checkouts” as these
features mature. “A clone of a Git repository copies all of its data: every version of every file in the history. For very large repositories, the cost of network transfer and local storage can make this awkward or even impossible, even if you’re only interested in a subset of the files. In the past several versions, Git learned the ability to execute a “partial” clone, which means that it can now clone and work with repositories without having all of their contents.
Partial clones are still considered an experimental feature from Git’s point of view. For instance, many providers (such as GitHub) don’t support this feature yet, and it’s continually changing and evolving within Git from release to release.”
