    Phoronix: Qt Shader Tools Looks To Become Official Qt6 Module

    The currently-experimental Qt Shader Tools allows for graphics/compute shader conditioning and used by the in-development Qt graphics abstraction layer for supporting Vulkan / Metal / Direct3D / OpenGL APIs...

    The best Linux graphical toolkit keeps getting only better and better. GTK is an embarrassment and is being put to shame.

          IIRC it was GTK splitting that started it due to unfounded concerns over Qt licencing

            GTK didn't split from Qt. It is an independent project that was started when Qt licensing was proprietary. Those concerns weren't unfounded at that time

              But GTK freetards keep attacking QT for being "non free" for something that was barely true in the 90s, nevermind today.

                Qt is far from being perfect too... it's bloated with a billion dependencies, and obsolete core designs like QStrings.

                I think the first thing they should focus on for Qt6, is to get rid of all those dependencies and make the toolkit lighter instead of adding features over and over.

                  I seriously doubt anyone really involved GTK is "attacking" Qt. Feel free to provide a source of that. Qt was definitely under a proprietary license at that time. There were other valid issues such as C++ making other bindings harder than C. That remains true till now.

                    "GTK freetards" are GNOME fanbois on forums. He means clueless trolls are badmouthing Qt.
