This is mostly because we use the same provisioning as Qt, which still uses GCC 5.3 on RHEL7 even for Qt 5.15 (**), and so far the breakages were few. The current proposal is to bump the requirements to GCC 7 and Qt 5.14 for Qt Creator 4.14. Was about to write an email tomorrow after 4.13 went into feature freeze and master becomes 4.14 :) Also, we can investigate if we require C++17 for Qt Creator 4.14 then. Br, Eike (**) I can’t really say why Qt 5 still supports GCC 5.3 on RHEL, though I’d guess that this is the case because Qt 5 needs/wants to be compilable with this anyhow for some embedded platforms -- Eike Ziller Principal Software Engineer The Qt Company GmbH Erich-Thilo-Straße 10 D-12489 Berlin eike.zil...@qt.io http://qt.io Geschäftsführer: Mika Pälsi, Juha Varelius, Mika Harjuaho Sitz der Gesellschaft: Berlin, Registergericht: Amtsgericht Charlottenburg, HRB 144331 B _______________________________________________ Qt-creator mailing list Qtfirstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.qt-project.org/listinfo/qt-creator
