How long will I be able to build Qt Creator with Qt4

I'm using Qt Creator through NX Client. It is on remote linux machine compiled and installed.
In order to get better performance, I need to start it with "-graphicssystem native" - this increases performance very much.
Recently I found out Qt5 does not support this any more - Too bad.
I just wanted to ask how long will I be able to compile Qt Creator with Qt4.8 - are there any dates or deadlines for setting minimum Qt version to 5?
Qt Creator 2.8 will support both Qt 4 and 5, that much is certain.
There are a couple of nice things in Qt 5 that we want to use, on the other hand there still are major Linux distributions that do not ship Qt 5 out of the box. We will see how that situation will develop.
My guess is that the version past 2.8 will most likely still work with Qt 4 and Qt 5. I hope the one after that can go Qt 5 all the way. But as I said: That is just my personal guess, there are no plans that are set in stone that I am aware of.
