    Phoronix: Qt 6.0 Beta Released For This Big Toolkit Update

    It was just two weeks ago that the Qt 6.0 Alpha released, but in aiming to get the release back on schedule, the beta is already shipping today...

    Wow, Qt 6 beta is out and Kubuntu is not even on 5.13, or 5.14, or 5.15
    It's so way behind that makes me wanna cry...
    And the whole Linux different package managers crap makes me not have an option to switch to a non Debian based distro.

    It would be very nice if this new Qt toolkit would give a little hand to the KDE developers to support better / faster Wayland / Vulkan and multi-monitor with different resolutions and refresh rates setups.

      That's what KDE Neon is for.

              I wonder why so few people use Fedora:

              Code:
              rpm -q qt5-qtbase
              qt5-qtbase-5.14.2-5.fc32.x86_64

                It's got nothing to do with Qt (though Fedora is all about Gnome). Fedora is kind of bleeding edge and you usually don't want that at home. But it's great for developers, precisely because it's bleeding edge.
                Debian and Ubuntu also carry ancient Qt...

                  I've been using Fedora since RedHat 5.0 and it's "bleeding edge" maybe in the first 2-4 weeks after a new release. After that, it all calms down.

                    The dude to which DanL replied was talking about Debian-based systems, to which KDE Neon is a decent alternative in that realm, so not sure why you're dragging Arch and Suse into this...
