Tuukka Turunen of The Qt Company has shared some of the project's goals for the 2017 calendar year in delivering Qt 5.9 and Qt 5.10 along with more point releases.

Qt developers hope to make 2017 exciting by shipping Qt 5.9 in May and their hope is to ship Qt 5.10 this November.

Qt 5.9 has a lot of great features coming as we have already written about in other articles, while Qt 5.10 will be even more exciting. A few days ago I wrote about Qt 5.10 set to have initial Vulkan support while there is much more laid out by Tuukka about Qt 5.10.

Qt 5.10 is expected to support streaming of Qt Quick application UIs over a network to a browser using WebGL and building off their existing Native Client (NaCl) support. Qt Quick in 5.10 is also expected to support arbitrary path rendering, other 3D improvements, and much more.

Qt developers are looking at putting out more patch/point releases this year as well as possibly making Qt 5.9 some sort of long-term release.

Those interested in more details can find them via blog.qt.io.
