    Phoronix: Qt 5.7 Is Going To A Feature Freeze While Qt 5.6 Isn't Even Coming For Another Month

    Qt 5.6 is running a solid three months behind schedule while Qt developers are hoping to offset further delays in the Qt5 release train by going into a feature freeze now for Qt 5.7...

    At this point, why not just skip 5.6? All of the bugfixes currently in 5.6 are in 5.7, and they'll only end up being released what? a month apart?

      That's assuming that 5.7 is released on time, which given recent history seems very unlikely.

        It is better they take the time to get it right, especially being the long term release that it is.

          5.6 is LTS which means that bugfixes will be backported for a long time.
