QCA is being developed outside of qt-project, so we can't easily add it to Qt. Better crypto support would IMO be great to have, but I currently don't think there's any active work ongoing in this area.


PS: Just as a side note: Adding better crypto support is something we could do without problems in the 5.x series, no need to think about Qt 6 because of that :)
