Hi!
I ask myself about the Qt6 support. When will ArcGISRuntimeQt will support Qt6 and when will qt6 be required?

Can you share your roadmap or expectations about this issue?

 

Thanks in advance

Hi Norbert -

 

Due to many very large architectural changes in Qt 6, we won't have a release of Runtime SDK that will work with Qt 6 when it is first released. Changes to the rendering stack will be the biggest change, but there are also changes to the asynchronous workflows and QML environment that will take some time to adapt to. As such, the Runtime SDK will be based on 5.15.x for at least the next several releases. We are still in the early stages of planning out all of the impacts and changes related to a Qt 6 upgrade (some of the pattern changes will likely require breaking API changes). At the moment, we are not sure of a timeline for which we will have a Qt 6-based SDK available. 

 

Can you share with me your plans, requirements, and timeline so we can take this into account?

 

Thanks,

Lucas

Hi Lucas!

Thank your for your clear statement.

We just started to take Qt6 into account. . If we have relevant news i will let you. But i assume that i will take time on our side too.

 

Stay healthy
