I guess making the released build(.dmg) with latest qt has the pros that a lot of qt bugs will be fixed for us but has the cons that you said regarding 10.5. I guess the amount of bug to take into consideration is smaller since we are using a lot of old modules, not new modules, QML or mobile stuff. Should we offer two different builds .dmg : one built with qt 4 recommended for old version and one done with qt 5 for new versions ? It's hard to tell, even though support is limited, maybe there is still less bug in qt 5 on old systems, than on qt 4. Qt 5 is probably not tested on old windows versions(and also some distros if we decide to make prepackaged binary), should we do the same ?
