> I propose to remove support for QNX 6.6 from Qt 5.11 onwards.
> Since Qt 5.9.0 we have supported both QNX 6.6 and 7.0, but going forward we would support only QNX 7.0 with new Qt versions. QNX 6.6 continues to be supported with Qt 5.9 LTS and Qt 5.10.
> Based on my experience QNX 7.0 is a better choice for new projects than QNX 6.6. It has, for example, better C++11 support, 64 bit support and improved graphics support.
> I have discussed the topic with James McDonnell (QNX platform maintainer) as well as QNX product management and they agree that it is better to focus into improving QNX 7.0 support with upcoming Qt releases rather that splitting the effort between QNX 6.6 and 7.0.
If we also remove MSVC 2013, only compilers with complete C++11 support on both core language
and library side will remain in CI.
