In fact, Fedora even still ships Qt 3 and Qt 4 and they are not going away 
any time soon! Some applications will never get ported. What's the benefit 
of the new features in new Qt releases if your application works just fine 
without those features? The most important feature in a library is backwards 
compatibility!
