Expecting Qt 6

Qt 5 was officially released on 19 December 2012 - almost 6 years ago. So it is time to wait for new major release - Qt 6. According to information from Qt Contributor Summit 2018 Qt 6 is planned for November 2020. What should we expect in this major release?

  • There will be no major breaking changes comparing to Qt 5, will be easy to migrate
  • Qt 5.15 will be the last release for Qt 5 and it will be LTS release
  • The build system will be changed, it won't be qmake any more (probably qbs)
  • Qt 6 will use C++ 17
For sure, there will be much more information about Qt 6 next year so stay tuned :)
