Within the next couple of weeks we will be switching the minimum QT version
from 4.8 to 5.2*
QT 4 goes End of Life at the end of this year and so we want our next release,
the one users will be using past this deadline to be built on QT 5. Having
access to some of the features of QT 5 is also a nice benefit.
*5.2 was selected as the minimum version as this is the lowest version offered
by all distros we surveyed. We won't rule out a move to a more recent version,
i.e. 5.4 which is already available for most distros sometime before the
We're on the hunt for bugs caused by the switch to QT 5 and this is something
you can help us with. So please make sure you're ready for the switch, the
earlier you start the transition to QT 5 the smoother the process will be.
