[Interest] Qt 5.13 Bluetooth Windows

Now that's a good news! I'm looking forward to use 5.13 just for this, we will finally be able to test our BLE application under Windows. Do you know if the BLE advertising can be seen in raw byte? or only iBeacon/eddy stone.../pregen format is supported under Windows? 

I did iOS and Android raw advertising extraction, wonder if that will be possible under Windows too (we are using valid advertising format but we do use our own manufacturer data format, so we can have custom beacon with optimized payload for sensor data and encryption).
