Hi Thiago,

The team I'm working with have been keeping up with the latest VS 
version - mainly for the security fixes and new C++11/17/20 features 
available in Qt 5.15.  But VS2022 introduced changes to the enum 
handling last year, which has made Intellisense useless for them - 
especially class enum's.  Made worse since we had previously changed 
many of our enum's to class ones.  :O(

I doubt that would stop anyone upgrading, but maybe there are other 
non-compiler reasons for staying with older versions of dev environments.
