[Interest] Qt 6.5 Is Irrelevant for More than 95% of Mac Desktops

I totally subscribe this statement from Robert.

We are starting to develop a new application with Qt 6.4.1. Qt 6 is still very bug prone and we will keep stumbling on them and you will probably keep releasing new version of Qt 6 rather fix versions of Qt 6.4.X

Our users are very conservative about upgrading Mac OS because usually new version of Mac OS contain bugs and incompatibilities of existing software and no one wants to risk breaking their music setup at each Mac OS release.

This seems like a total non-sense decision. What are the fundaments for such decision?

Thank you!

Best regards,

Nuno Santos
Founder / CEO / CTO
