I would be surprised if it got removed from anything other than the binary packages. It might be something that one has to opt-in to at configure time, but I don't see any gain in basically breaking the compatibility guarantee. The whole point of "deprecated" is to mark something for future removal instead of removing it. And as far as I know no Qt API, let alone a whole module, has ever been removed in a point release. Only major releases do that if at all. > I still have some hope - I think Qt will still apply at least security > fixes for QtWebKit until Qt 6, which still should be a while away. I would also be surprised if they would knowingly ship insecure code. Cheers, Kevin
