The file name says "482", so I expect it is MinGW containing GCC 4.8.2. Except 
I can't find it in the MinGW download links from
The latest version appears to be 4.8.1-4.

I'll confirm with the Qt release team what was used there.

I'd venture a guess that the same compiler being used for Qt 5 should work:

Which is why Qt recommends you install it in C:\Qt and MinGW goes to C:\MinGW.
