Qt on QNX is still very well supported, by Blackberry themselves. It's one of 
the platforms tested in the Qt continuous integration system.

I have no clue about iMX6 though.

In the same place as the roadmap for all the other platforms.

We don't make roadmaps.

Most likely we'll need to support 6.6 for some time. The fact that it uses GCC 
4.7 was a problem, as I wanted to drop it from our supported list for 5.10.

All of the ones we develop. That excludes qtwebkit and qtwebengine, since they 
are upstream projects.

And there's QtWebkit 5.212 if you need an update.

They work for Blackberry.
