Our binaries are built with Qt 5.14.1, and therefore support macOS 10.13.
You still _can_ build Qt Creator yourself with Qt 5.11.

Enough when the minimum is 10.14, right?
So I suppose that would be end of this year after macOS 10.16 is out,
== Qt Creator 4.14.

So, how about dropping LLDB/python2 support with Qt Creator 4.14?
