    Phoronix: Qt 5.11 Release Candidate Arrives, Final Release May Come Early

    While there have been several Qt5 tool-kit releases where they have arrived late, the upcoming Qt 5.11 might be released one week ahead of schedule...

    They've moved a lot of include files around with this release. Does anyone know if KDE Frameworks & Plasma have been updated to deal with this yet?

        I am running KDE framework build against Qt 5.11 here. It did need a few changes, but not due to any moved files. The biggest issue was a method that was deprecated and replaced with another better function, and some KDE modules both using the old method and compiling by default with -Werror-deprecation, so it would refuse to build because they were using the now deprecated API. Qt is API and ABI stable between releases, so you need to do something wrong to make and upgrade fail.

          I accidentally installed the alphas and got a lot of build failures when KDE was being rebuilt
