That's more or less what I was a bit afraid of. I do have some questions about the whole idea of having a LTS Qt release, much as I'd love not having to worry about updating such a central bit of code every few months. However, I also think something like KF5 Plasma shouldn't have the latest Qt version as a minimum requirement. But that's just me, I'm not the kind of dev who's always ready to pounce on each and every new gimmick ;)
