I was wondering what are the plans for the Qt pre-built binary release built with MSVC 2019 (16.0+)? The SP support for MSVC 2017 ends along with Window 7 support on 14th January 2020 (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/lifecycle/search?alpha=Visual%20Studio%202017 <https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/lifecycle/search?alpha=Visual%20Studio%202017>) and after that only the maintenance and no active development will be done for MSVC 2017. It would make sense to switch to the 2019 even before that happens and favour it in the installer over the 2017 version. Or perhaps provide both for some time similar to how now there are both 2015 and 2017 versions now - having 2017+2019 and dropping 2015 whose support ends in 2020 anyway.
