    Anyone know if the new 4.7.3 Beta Release fixes this issue?

    I just had my Qt-based app Cosmographia approved by Apple. They review process was quick: three and a half days, including a rejection because I had messed up and linked the executable to Qt framesworks outside the bundle.

    Here's what I did:

    - Rebuilt the Qt 4.7.3 libraries with the three patches from Aron Rosenberg: https://bugreports.qt.nokia.com//browse/QTBUG-16549
    - Added "-gdwarf-2" to QMAKE_CFLAGS and QMAKE_CXXFLAGS to force building the Release version with DWARF+dSYM mode
    - Created a custom Info.plist with the app category and bundle ID; forced qmake to use this instead of the default by setting QMAKE_INFO_PLIST in the project file
    - Did a full rebuild
    - Generated symbols:
    dsymutil AppName.app/Contents/MacOS/AppName -o AppName.app.dSYM
    - Signed the app bundle:
    codesign -f -s “3rd Party Mac Developer Application: My Name” AppName.app
    - Built the package:
    productbuild \
    --component AppName.app /Applications \
    --sign “3rd Party Mac Developer Installer: My Name” \
    AppName.pkg

    Definitely test the package afterward so you don't get rejected for a silly reason:
    sudo installer -store -pkg AppName.pkg -target /

    My app uses nearly the full set of Qt libraries, including QtDeclarative. Apple doesn't seem to mind as long as the app works and doesn't write files outside of its sandbox.

    Are you using Qt under the commercial licence or LGPL?

    Hi,

    We have 5 different applications approved by Mac AppStore.

    All of them use Qt 4.7.3 LGPL version. We have compiled our self. In one of them we also use Ogre 3D engine + CEGUI and it was also approved (it has approved in 2 days)

    So from my experience you can use Qt 4.7.3 without any problems.

    I'm using the LGPL license. The code for my app is mostly LGPL as well.

    I have the steps as you described, and the installer-store-pkg have "has valid signature for submission: 3rd Party Mac Developer Installer:".
    Why apple send mail to me "Invalid Signature".
    Please help me, Thanks.
