Well, it was nearly good enough in the Qt5 days with Controls V1.
All they needed was a better set of controls to accommodate mobile more and
reduce complexity in V1.
What they did - conceptually - with V2 was good.
But it seems like they just left it in alpha quality and call it "ok" to
replace V1.. That was a mistake.
It needed much more development time to be a proper replacement.
We're now like ~8 years past the introduction of the V2 set...
And it still has really severe bugs that just interrupt usability. 8
So I doubt it will be getting any better at all.
