I have an almost complete Qt6 port of Cantor here:

Missing is one issue with the Kpart code, I couldn't figure out. In case 
someone wants to investigate, I would be quite grateful.

Parlay was ported to Qt6 yesterday!

some apps (digikam, kmymoney).

Okay this is a big issue :( I suppose (and hope) that KDE PIM is an optional 
library for these two apps. I think Digikam can already be built with Qt6 so 
hopefully a qt6 version is released not so far away from the megarelease. For 
KMyMoney, I'm not sure any work has been done so far to port to Qt6 and some 
of the KMyMoney library are still supporting qt4 :(

qmltermwidget is not really maintained. I remember Johnah had a fork somewhere 
but I can't find it anymore.

Do you have some more details about this. I thought the latest release was co-
installable with qt5 and qt6. In any cases, I hope itinerary will be ported to 
qt6 in time for qt6 which would solve the issue.

translations catalogue for the qt6 version should be kirigami-addons6, unless 
I messed up somewhere. See

I'm going to ping some people so that mpv-qt get a release :)

Thanks for the very helpful information,
