Qt 5.6 is a supported LTS release. I think it deserves to be on the main page, especially if 4.8 is there.

  • Qt 5.9 is the current LTS release replacing Qt 5.6.
    • Qt 5.9 doesn't replace Qt 5.6. It is still supported. 5.6.3, and if the 3 year support promise is kept, also 5.6.4 and hopefully 5.6.5 will be released. So it needs to be in that table if Qt 4.8.7 is there and as long as there are releases to be made for 5.6. Just keeping 4.8 and 5.9 makes it like there is no other choice for users. This is a disservice to your users. Actually you shouldn't recommend 5.9 so eagerly, at least not until 5.9.2 is released, i.e. not until many regressions and P1 issues are resolved. Until that time, 5.6 remains a good recommendation for conservative users.
      • As the table says, it is current releases, for Qt4 that is 4.8.7, Qt5 is 5.9. Both 5.8 and 5.6 (5.7 support time ended 15.6.2017) are right now still both supported, but not listed on the frontpage, they are in the all releases table.


Q: Entry "Overview" on the Main page does not link to an existing page. Category General (to which this entry is linked) does not exist. Should this entry be deleted?

EOL version in tutorial

Is it OK to edit tutorials to eliminate references and instruction about EOL versions like 12.10 Ubuntu specific instructions (EOL since 2014) or Qt 4 specific instructions (EOL since 2015).

For example see
