    Phoronix: Qt 5.14 Hits Alpha With Major Renderer Work, Better HiDPI Support

    The Qt Company has announced the availability of the Qt 5.14 Alpha release ahead of this half-year tool-kit update due out before year's end. Qt 5.14 is also the second to the last in the Qt5 series with an increasing amount of work shifting to Qt6 that is expected to debut towards the end of 2020...

    Damn it... Guess I'm going for QtQC2 then...

    Even GTK+3 achieves GPU acceleration for the basic widgets.

    Quick Controls 1's QStyle theme has some bugs though. QQC1 is also deprecated and will most likely be removed in Qt 6 (5.15 will be last version of Qt 5).

    Do both Qt Quick Controls 1 and 2 support GPU acceleration?

    It is supported in the sources and AFAIK the VS2017 binaries are compatible with VS2019 which is why there are no separate binaries

    If that renderer is another graphics API on top of Vulkan, DX etc I'm not gonna use it, I've had enough learning OpenGL and Vulkan. I'm sick and tired that every toolkit reinvents everything.
