[odb-users] Using ODB Qt Profile Library w/ Qt5

Whenever I try to build and run the tests I get this error:

error C2039: 'fromAscii' : is not a member of 'QString'
c:\qt\qt5.0.1\5.0.1\msvc2010\include\qtcore\qstring.h(208) : see
declaration of 'QString'

This is in Visual Studio, and I am using version 5.0.1 of Qt.  Reading
the Qt documentation, I see that QString::fromAscii has been deprecated.
Has this been fixed in newer builds of ODB?

Good questions. To answer it I just ran all the test in the test suite
against Qt5 and everything worked fine out of the box. So looks like all
you need to do is change the linker dependency.

We also plan to support Qt5 "officially" with the next release of ODB
(coming out in a week or two). This will include a set of VC++ project/
solution files for Qt5 in addition to Qt4.
