QT --
Sean Harmer of KDAB is organizing work around some upcoming "major Qt 3D features" for the open-source toolkit.

It's not known if the next round of Qt 3D features will be ready for the Qt 5.9 tool-kit release, but KDAB is looking to have these new branches for feature work with continuous integration coverage.

New Qt 3D features to be worked on include key-frame animation support, support for rendering and interacting with Qt Quick 2 elements in a 3D scene, and a new particle system for Qt 3D. Those are the feature branches being talked about today but Harmer commented that other branches will be coming later on with new features, confirmed in this mailing list post.

Qt 5.9 will be coming up in 2017 while before that Qt 5.8 is still working towards its release in late November or December.
