    I wonder, can't Qt do something to help KDE Plasma implement HDR support faster?
    Or a Vulkan back-end for rendering the desktop?

      "The next release, Qt 6.5, will come with long-term-support for commercial users, and our focus will be on stabilizing and finalizing those features based on your feedback. In addition, we are working on the port of Qt Location to Qt 6, we are improving the theming support for Windows 11 and Linux desktops"

      The baseline of KDE6?
      Released once they have QT 6.5.3 out in the wild (as the most stable non-Commercial lts release of the .5 series).

        It is really limited by the output options, we need it in X11 or Wayland first. Plus we need a more solid idea of how applications should act on HDR desktops. It is already pretty weird on Windows.

        Vulkan though should work already. Set QSG_RHI_BACKEND=vulkan and qml applications such as Plasma ought to render with vulkan. Havent tried it though. Maybe one of the things holding up KDE6 since shaders needs to be converted.

          More details on the Qt 6.4 changes can be found via the Qt blog. Meanwhile next year users can look forward to Qt 6.5 that will be a Long Term Support (LTS) Release and will be seeing improvements around theming for the Linux desktop as well as Windows 11 plus continuing to enhance the performance of QML, among other changes.​
          Personally, I'm waiting on the release after that thanks to their One Year LTS policy.

          Also, the "More details" sentence belongs to the previous text block and "Meanwhile" should have started a new one to separate Qt 6.4 and 6.5 information.

          However, the module documentation does acknowledge though it doesn't have the robustness and security to be used as an Internet-facing web server but rather focused for smaller local/LAN-based web serving needs.
          "Though" should be "that" and "but rather" replaced with "due to being" and then "for" with "on"...well that's a fustercluck of a sentence...

          Michael The article barely make sense in a few spots. You seem tired.

            Also, about the "Limited to Qt Commercial customers, Qt 6.4 also brings a new Qt VNC Server module" sentence... that is not true. The Qt VNC Server module is no part of Qt, as it's written in the original article: "It works on top of Qt 6.4, and allows you to share any Qt Quick application with a VNC-compatible client."

                Soon enough they'll be an entire OS by themselves...
