    my guess a lot of Distro's wont bother with 5.15 instead they'll wait for QT6

      I really can't wait for someone to fork the 5.15 LTS branch and start backporting the fixes after the release of Qt6.
      I wonder how many devs will use 5.12 LTS until the very end. I for one won't even be touching 5.15 any time soon and I hope many do the same.
      Maybe that way they'll learn something...

        Great!
        Now I wish the Kubuntu develpers wold hurry up and update Qt 5.12 to Qt 5.15 and compile KDE Plasma 5.19 beta so we can test it and find bugs before the final release.

          6 will bring major changes that will require a lot of time and effort to accommodate. 5.15 is an LTS version, so it is not the worst place to get stuck for a while... or forever in some cases. The community is not exactly thrilled by the qt management...

            They will need both, but I doubt 6.0 will be that used. It will be somewhat incomplete.

              Seriously, why has every UI framework their own webkit fork? Can't they depend on a common library?

                It took at least a year for Qt 5 to be stable enough to serve as a usable replacement. Get ready to use this one for a while.

                    It's an LTS for paying costumers.
