    Do we have any Qt 6 software?

    When is VLC media player and LibreOffice getting released with support for Qt 6?

      qBittorrent started publishing experimental installers built against Qt6 (on Windows)
      cmake-gui (rarely used) is now built against Qt6 (on Windows)

      The biggest blocker for developers to build against Qt6 even their code is compatible is that few Linux distros has Qt6.
      - Debian has Qt6 landed recently in experimental repos (not even in unstable)
      - Ubuntu has no qt6 package
      - snap the same (governed by KDE who will unlikely to release a qt6 snap until they ported their framework "KF" to Qt6)
      - Flathub just released recently but still experimental.
      - Fedora has Qt6, but some other Qt6 related packages still not like PyQt6 and PySide6.

        https://github.com/LibreOffice/core/...3942ab51af6db6

        So at least some hints that QT6 gets tested for libreoffice but no idea for VLC. I know Qutebrowser and Chatterino (a twitch chat client) have a at least working QT6 version but still work to do.

          Has anyone noticed how the last couple of years creator has gotten rather bloated and unresponsive, lagging out when processing the code model, or outright breaking until the view is closed and reopened?

            Yes. It's the result of using the clang stuff. The original code model was extremely fast, but they didn't want to update it for modern C++ (too much work) and decided to use the clang code parsers. And they are slooooooooooooooow.

            I think Microsoft's intellisense code model is pretty much unbeatable right now when it comes to speed.

              Well, that's the difference between a compiler and a language server. Rust has the same problem with their original language server (RLS). It basically called the compiler each time a file changed. but the new one is specifically engineered for that use case.

                Yes, we do.
                Qsynth and Qsampler have started to use Qt 6, and it looks ugly since KDE hasn't even worked on Breeze for Qt 6.
