Confusion about QML module versions



  • I have continuing confusion about QML module versions and haven't found adequate discussion to straighten myself out. In particular:

    1. Where do I find the latest (or for whatever reason, preferred) version number of a particular module?
    2. Where do I find info about the differences between versions?
    3. Should I be surprised at the range of module versions specified by different QML examples? For example, different QML examples import QtQuick 2.[0-7]
    4. Is there a way to specify in the import statement to use the latest module version? I find it hard enough to keep operational consitency between all .qml files without the added burden of remembering to update everything when a new version of a module comes out.

    Any suggestions appreciated

    the latest docs always show the latest import version

    this would do harm your application more than you would benefit from it.
    When your application works like intended, there is no reason to upgrade the version. A higher version might introduce different behavior in some cases.
