Qt 5.6 LTS Support Comes to an End on 16th March 2019

Qt 5.6 LTS Support Ends

After just over three years since it was first released, Qt 5.6 LTS Support has finally come to an end. This means that the version will no longer receive patch level releases, bug and security fixes.

Support has been dropped in favor of Qt 5.9 LTS and related patch level releases. In spite of this, it is better advised to upgrade to the latest Qt 5.12 LTS patch level release.

For those who cannot upgrade for any reason can still sign up for extended support at an additional cost for both Standard as well as Premium Support.

Users can update to Qt 5.12.2 via the maintenance tool of the online installer. New installations of Qt can be downloaded from the official download page here.
