Back in October Qt 6.6 released with Qt Graphs being introduced, more robust Wayland support, various render enhancements, and more. Out today is Qt 6.6.1 with more than four hundred bugs resolved.

Qt 6.6.1 is strictly a maintenance point release with fixing hundreds of bugs as a result of all the new features introduced in Qt 6.6. This morning's release announcement by Qt's Jani Heikkinen notes that there are more than 400 bug fixes as well as security updates to find in this first point release.

Qt 6.6.2 meanwhile is expected to be released in January. For Qt long-term support users, as of last month Qt 6.5 shifted to its commercial-only LTS phase.
