Good to hear!

Part of it comes from CMake generating ninja files instead of Makefiles.

Just want to share this random piece of feedback.

I have found a brutal difference between compiling Qt 5 and Qt 6 from source. Qt 6 compiles extremely fast.

Are this the benefits of using cmake to build it?

Big props to Qt team!
