I view the most recent branch (5.11 in this case) as your bold move into new
features and, as long as that branch is sub-versioned (5.11.x),
the dust has not settled.

It appeared that the dust had settled on 5.10 and all known bugs, especially
those introduced in otherwise mature code, like QAbstractItemView, would
have been resolved.

So, I can't use 5.11 because the dust has not settled and
now I can't use any previous version because even the most basic
of classes may have known bugs.

That is my conundrum.
