    Websockets will probably be ported further down the road. It's too important a technology to be left out in the cold, imho.
    It is already "ported" in that it builds and runs. But it hasn't been cleaned up or any necessary improvements made yet. Same with many of the modules missing in Qt6.

      There are a lot of things to criticise about GTK. Its slower progress, some unfortunate design choices, the failure to attract the same level of interest in it as projects based on it and a lot more. But one thing isn't to criticise and that is its license.

      But this here isn't about GTK, its about Qt.

        We play this game now since 1996 and some people still didn't get the notice. You fool no one but yourself.

          The first link that you quoted it's a "might". You show a "might" that as a proof. You fool no one but yourself.

              It cant get more direct then the Qt Company itself writing "But last week, the company suddenly informed both the KDE e.V. board and the KDE Free QT Foundation that the economic outlook caused by the Corona ...... As a result, they are thinking about restricting ALL Qt releases to paid license holders for the first 12 months. They are aware that this would mean the end of contributions via Open Governance in practice."

              You should ask a fair share from the Qt Company for all the free high quality shilling you do.

                And you wrote what you wrote based on a "might" and on this? You should ask a fair share from Red Hat for all the free shilling you do. As usual, anyone that has no real job is able to waste all day writing internet posts, coming and writing after every Qt or KDE news. Don't be surprised when you are not answered, other people have real jobs.

                  For my part, I can say that I have been using Qt for years. Sadly the licensing drama that, from time to time, re-emerges and too many bugs, especially in Qt Quick ( and only God knows when they will be fixed ) have become really disappointing.

                  Also, C++ has evolved a lot and now it has a lot of things that, in the past, were only accessible through Qt, Boost and a bunch of other libraries. For the GUI, wxWidgets is a very good choice.

                  On the mobile, God bless Flutter. I have had a hard time in the past ( no Xamarin was even worse than Qt bug-wise ), but now we have a superb framework, that is cross-platform.

                    Still leaves a dilemma: do you aim for the latest C++ standard, slimming down Qt in the process, but breaking compatibility with older C++ implementations or do you keep whatever is already in Qt and maximum compatibility? Personally, I'd opt for the former, but I can see how practical reasons could dictate you go with the latter.

                      Only on mobile? Flutter was recently released for desktops as well.
