There are several reasons why you might want to do your own build of \QC,
like using the most current development version and being able to tweak
\QC at one or the other place. It is also necessary if you want to
create your own \QC plugin.

\section1 Getting Qt
Prebuilt \QC packages usually use the latest stable release of Qt.
You can see the exact minimum requirement at the top of \QC's qtcreator.pro.

(You can find the current version in our source repository here:

You can get prebuilt Qt packages from \l{https://download.qt.io}{Qt Downloads}.
If you want to use Qt as provided by your Linux distribution, you need to make sure that all
Qt development packages and private header packages are also installed.

\section1 Getting and Building \QC
You can get the \QC sources for a specific version either by using one of the
released source bundles, or from the Git repository
\l{https://code.qt.io/cgit/qt-creator/qt-creator.git}. If you intend to contribute to \QC
itself, you should use the repository from our Gerrit review tool as described
in: \l{https://wiki.qt.io/Setting_up_Gerrit}{Setting up Gerrit}.
