- List of improvements since last year
- PyPy support
- wheel split
- cross building
- wheel size reduced
- libraries split (libpysideqml, libpyside)
- many new QML decorators
- pyside6-qmllint, pyside6-project
- Improved documentation
- Binding generation details
- Shiboken (bindings generator)
- Opaque containers were added: Python bindings for C++ containers
- Made many types built-in: primitive C++ types as well as containers

- The Shiboken module can now be imported as shiboken6
- Improved documentation of new functionalities, options, etc.
- Qt Enums as Python Enums
- Improve embedded story

- Continue improvement on Python ecosystem
- Ogi Moore:
- Thanks for being open to new compatibilities in NumPy.
- FK: Np* methods is there, so the idea now is to use void ptr?
** What I suggest is to use VoidPtr
- Regarding PyPy support: found some issue. Will open a bug report.
- wheels for ARM?
- Soon! Qt6 is arriving in Debian Testing, so once that's done we could workaround creating wheels.
- Here is a preliminary set of wheels on Debian 12 (testing) arm64 https://qtinfo.dev/624_aarch64.tar.gz
- Maybe the transformation of code within Qt/C++ snippets to a snippet file in Qt/C++ could be a nice task for people wanting to contribute.
- Then, if the snippet/file exist, we can transform it.
