I would really like this! Getting Qt 5.12 on SFOS would be great :) This way we can keep up with the LTS releases of Qt, this would speed up the development of SFOS apps.

Kind regards,

Not sure whether it has been considered by others and I wonder whether we can make a separate Qt 5.12 packages for /opt/qt512?

As far as I remember, Wayland was rather old and, maybe, it will preclude Qt 5.12 compilation. @mal, though, had a newer version around and it may serve a purpose for such project. Is there anything else that should be considered?
