Solved Widgets: what's been removed between 5.5.1 and 5.12.2?
I'm upgrading a large Windows desktop application from Qt 5.5.1 to 5.12.2. In order to estimate my effort in advance, how can I determine which classes/methods have been removed from Widgets [and not simply deprecated]? I know Qt WebKit is one, but is there a list?
Hi and welcome to devnet,
QtWebKit is a module. The QtWidgets module hasn't lost any classes.
You can find everything in the release logs.
which classes/methods have been removed from Widgets
None of them.
Qt promises source and binary compatibility across minor releases. No class/method is allowed to be removed from a module (including Qt Widgets) until Qt 6.
is there a list?
Like @SGaist said, the release notes are the official authoritative source. For convenience, you can see:
- (... etc.)
Look for the "Removed Modules" headings to find out which modules have been removed.
@sgaist Thanks for that distinction.
@jksh Thanks for the links. They are what I needed.
