Mac menu conventions changed in Qt 5.1.0
Qt has been following Mac conventions by automatically moving About, Quit, Preferences to the application menu and Help to the Help menu regardless of the menu in which the action is added.
Having rebuilt my application on Qt 5.1.0 I noticed that About, Quit and Preferences are not being relocated. Can anyone else confirm this ?

I can confirm that preferences and about menu items in Qt 5.1 were moved from standard Mac menu to the place defined in QtCreator. I solved this by using the method setMenuRole:
ui->actionAbout->setMenuRole(QAction::AboutRole); // 5.1 fix
ui->actionPreferences->setMenuRole(QAction::PreferencesRole); // 5.1 fix
Good tip, thanks.
