    Phoronix: LibreOffice Lands Initial Code For Qt6 Toolkit Support

    Merged this morning into the LibreOffice code-base is the initial Qt6 VCL plug-in...

    Who uses Qt6?

    Anyway, I love their multiplatform approach.

    Would it be feasible to use VCL for apps outside the LibreOffice umbrella?

      If you are willing to write a separate backend for each platform, yes, you can wirte the interface using the generic VCL and a lot of different rendering paths. And create custom widgets for each platform if needed.

          I hope this isn't their plan for fixing the micro font problem on Wayland when using KDE.

            Why do they need multiple toolkits?
            Just stick with one and make a look that sticks across the multiple OS (like Blender)...

            Anyway, this project is such a waste.
            A decade it's been created to improve over OOo and a decade later, it's still is OOo by 99 percent, same UI, same perf, same issues, same too big code base...

              What the heck are you talking about? The number of commits have been massive; it's OpenOffice where development has stalled. They did add a new optional UI, significant new features, better performance, and cleaned up the code base.

                do you even use it? sounds like you are talking nonsense.

                  "optional new UI" is that a joke? The 7 options are just rearrangements of the same 1990s dated interface.

                    Dated but usable - quite the opposite to for example ms office.
                    Personally, i know which combination of "dated/"modern" " and "usable/UX-nightmare" i prefer
