I can't speak to 5.15 as we decided not to upgrade since it's not a real
LTS release (we do not believe we are eligible to purchase a commercial
license), but the minor fixes that come later in LTS releases (5.9 and
5.12) have often fixed problems our users have reported in our application,
particularly on macOS. Due to behavior changes in different Qt minor
versions (again, primarily on macOS), we typically change the Qt minor
version only when we release a new major version of our application (~every
2-3 years).

LTS releases have been critical in our successful use of Qt, and I am not
sure what will happen moving forward.
