as written above, Qt 5.6 - powering SailfishOS - is aging, thus upgrading to 5.9 seems to be a desirable idea...

@Jolla: any comment?

The've only just shifted to 5.6 so I don't think Jolla are going to rebase the os to 5.9 in the immediate future.

I would support a transition to 5.9 after it has matured in the wild. Jolla has already a lot to do to handle their own bugs and shouldn't move to a latest release of their utilized framework, where they have to deal with undiscovered bugs there.

@Vieno: I would add "... their OLD own bugs.."

Err, I'd love to see things moving much faster too, but you're not being honest here: 5.6 was released in march 16' with 3 years support, and we have it on our phones for almost 4 months now. There is still almost 2 years of support.

For now I prefer them to focus on the Xperias :) (Also, license has changed in 5.7 so it might impact them. )
