[Interest] Qt 6.2 vs. Qt 5.15 – The Feature Parity Comparison – QtPDF

I just went through the latest news article:

And the linked feature comparison table:

And it states this about Qt PDF:

> Due to its limited adoption in Qt 5, we are still studying whether to port

Qt PDF was added in Qt 5.14, so it has only been there since 2 minor
versions of Qt 5.
Since then we also had 2 minor versions of Qt 6 without this module.
Also the module was stripped from the open source online installer, and
open source users had to build it themselves or buy a $50 license on Qt

Given all of this I find weird to use Qt PDF adoption as an excuse for
dropping it. It basically never had a chance.
