The T>0 QCD transition is an analytic cross-over. This non-trivial result is shown by means of lattice simulations using physical quark masses and finite size scaling analysis extrapolated to the continuum limit. The transition temperature (Tc) is determined. The discrepancy between our (Wuppertal-Budapest) results and the results of the Bielefeld-Brookhaven- Columbia-Riken Collaboration & hotQCD Collaboration is discussed. Preliminary results on the equation of state are presented.
