"Given the deadline for the Qt 6.0 release at the end of 2020, it is likely
that not all Qt modules will be ready for the deadline set by the 6.0
release schedule."

Enter the QWebSocket module. As it currently stands QSW is in some kind of

Does this mean that QWS will be removed as an available module in Qt 6.0?
Will it be unsupported after Qt5.x releases?
If I use it currently, would it be wise to start using something different
if I would like to later jump to the Qt 6.X releases?

Yours Truly 2095,
