Version 4.1

Presentation: Keynote: Towards Qt 6

Event large

Qt has been the basis for KDE since its inception more than 20 years ago. After 7 years with Qt 5, work has now started towards a new major version of the frameworks. The talk will go through the main ideas and goals for Qt 6, focusing on high level ideas, but also going into some concrete details.

Qt is an integral part of the KDE frameworks, and major version updates of Qt have so far always also triggered larger changes in the KDE frameworks. The talk will focus on some of the larger changes planned for Qt 6, but also go into some details where those are relevant. Many of the planned changes are still subject to discussion within the Qt project and at the Qt Contributor Summit, where KDE is also invited to contribute.

While we will try to maintain source compatibility between Qt 5 and Qt 6 to the largest degree, the new major version will certainly trigger changes in KDE as well.
