Planned maintenance has been done but it did not solve the problem. So work will continue on this and a new time for trying updates will be announced asap.

Android build and deploy. 64bit, Clang, new app store developer console rules [2018 & 2019]



  • Hi I'm writing here cause qt team deleted my post on blog.qt.io,

    1. What is going on inside Android dev area? Can we expect some news for example with support out of the box of the newest ndk with clang support and dropping gcc in Qt-5.12 or Qt-6.0?

    2. Is Qt going more in embedded/car side and just slowly drops Android/mobile platform? In Roadmap 2018 there is nothing new about mobile platform.

    3. What is your move Qt team on new app store rules in developer console: minimal platform-26 in August 2018 and 64-bit apk in 2019? Some new changes in build and deploy area?

    Hi and welcome to the user forums.
    We are developers like you and the Qt devs do not monitor the forums.
    A better place for such questions would be
    http://lists.qt-project.org/mailman/listinfo
    where the Qt devs are.

    But other might have insight though. sounds like the new rules might be issue at some point.

    i heavily doubt that.
    I guess the reason is more because Qt runs more or less stable on Android. There are no bigger features which need to be implemented, mostly bug fixing.

    i asked this at the beginning of the year, but unfortunately haven't received an answer.
