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.

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.
