  • Qt 6.1, Qt 6.2 Expected To Come Sooner With Tightened Release Cycles

    Phoronix: Qt 6.1, Qt 6.2 Expected To Come Sooner With Tightened Release Cycles

    Qt 6.0 is releasing in December and The Qt Company is already drafting plans for the release cycles of Qt 6.1 and Qt 6.2 LTS next year...

    Ok, so 6.2 is when things should start winding down. Winding down for Qt and ramping up for anyone relying on Qt, that is.
    I'd love to hear some developer feedback about Qt6.

        But seriously, I hope this means that Qt and Ubuntu releases start to sync up better; with the .04s using the September Qt release and the .10s using the April Qt release. Not that I use Ubuntu, but the most used distribution (according to most numbers) having Qt versions that are closer to upstream is better for the ecosystem as a whole. It looks like it'll sync up with SUSE's release cycle better, too.

          Not going to happen. Qt versions in Ubuntu are ancient, this has nothing to do with Qt's release cycle. I think it's just the way they get Qt from Debian which releases once in a blue moon.

            GTK and GNOME used to be like that and now Ubuntu and Debian work on those releases together. No reason they can't do the same with Qt (and KDE).

              Debian unstable is not that far behind. Only Debian Stable and Ubuntu is.

                By 6.2 they'll start making plans about Qt 7.0

                  No reason other than Ubuntu actively using GTK and Gnome, whereas it traditionally offers one of the worst KDE experiences among Linux distros.

                  It doesn't usually happen that fast, but I wouldn't worry much if they did.

                    It's 8 years from Qt 5 to Qt 6. Eight years. Seven years and a half from Qt 4 to Qt 5.
