Qt Creator version 3.5 contains bug fixes and new features.

The most important changes are listed in this document. For a complete
list of changes, see the Git log for the Qt Creator sources that
you can check out from the public Git repository. For example:

    git clone git://code.qt.io/qt-creator/qt-creator.git
    git log --cherry-pick --pretty=oneline origin/3.4..origin/3.5

General

* Increased minimum requirements for compilation of Qt Creator to
  MSVC 2013 and GCC 4.7, and Qt 5.4.0
* Added variants with native separators to Qt Creator variables that
  represent file paths
* Changed the way inconsistent enabled states were handled by the
  plugin manager. Disabling plugins is now only a hint; if another
  (enabled) plugin needs it, it is implicitly enabled. Before, the
  other plugin was implicitly disabled.

* Added `-load all` and `-noload all` command line options that
  enable and disable all plugins respectively
* Made `-load` command line option implicitly enable all required
  plugins, and `-noload` disable all plugins requiring the
  disabled plugin. Multiple `-load` and `-noload` options are
  interpreted in the order given on the command line.
