This is very distro-specific, however. In particular in this version Qt isn't 
maintained by the community packagers, but comes from the "enterprise" side. 
And the enterprise side is sticking with (but also maintaining) the LTS 
present at time of the version freeze.

This might be worth discussing in distributions at ko though, as it is a matter 
on its own.

At least for the next Leap version I know it will be 5.9, the newest LTS at 
this time.
