You are right, that we are planning to have a QML to C++ conversion at the compile step within the Qt 6 cycle. However, it is not part of the initial 6.0 release and will come at a later stage.

As of now, we have been focusing on creating the infrastructure for this as well as setting the guidelines to successfully handle this conversion in the future.

We'll certainly keep everyone updated on the progress of this project.
