Botan library not compiled by QtCreator

  • Hi

    I'm using the Botan libraries by extracting them from QtCreator. They are very well integrated with QtCreator. What I do is compile QtCreator and copy the libs. However when I tried the same with version 2.6.0 I noticed that Botan libraries are not generated by QtCreator build any more. Can anybody point me some explanation on this?

    Thank you.

    Please be aware that Botan is used in Creator in very specific ways. We keep it patched, but only if those patches are relevant to our use cases.

    Please make sure all security patches relevant for your use cases are applied before using our copy. It is -- most likely -- not save for generic use!

    Better grab a copy from its homepage and use that one.

  • I use it only for public/private key cryptography which as I can see is used by SSH classes in QtCreator. As far as the patches are concerned it's goon enough for me. Is there anything that can be done to make QtCreator project create Botan libs as in the past?

    Thank you.
