Supported Platforms

The following platforms are supported in Qt 6.8. For information about prior Qt releases, please consult the relevant version in the Qt Documentation Archives.

Supported platforms are actively maintained, subjected to testing, and bugs discovered in these platforms are prioritized for correction. Significant errors discovered in testing can impact release dates.

The Qt Company offers commercial support for all officially supported platforms and configurations.

Note: Some of the platforms are only supported for certain types of commercial licenses. For details, please refer to Qt Support Terms and Conditions and your commercial license agreement.

Configurations not listed below are not officially supported by the Qt Project. However, Qt may still run on unsupported platforms and configurations. The Qt Company, Qt partners, open source developers, and community users are able to provide assistance in this situation.

Note: Support for specific configurations or operating system versions may end before the support for Qt 6.8 does. A subsequent patch release of Qt 6.8 may drop support for a configuration or replace it with a currently-supported version.

Web Platforms

WebAssembly

PlatformArchitectureCompilerImplementations
Web Browserwasm32Emscripten 3.1.50Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Safari

Qt for WebAssembly is a platform-agnostic technology that allows running apps on compatible browsers regardless of the underlying operating system. Qt for WebAssembly is well supported and tested on desktop browsers including Chrome, Edge, Firefox, and Safari. While Qt for WebAssembly is designed to function smoothly on desktop browsers, it is important to note that some mobile browsers may still lack some necessary features for reliably executing WebAssembly apps. Therefore, we strongly recommend application providers targeting mobile browsers to conduct comprehensive testing to ensure compatibility and performance.

Availability of Packages

You can download the Qt installers and source packages from the Downloads page. For more information, visit the Getting Started with Qt page.

Note: All the supported configurations are not provided as binary packages in Qt Online Installer. However, the intention is to provide the most widely-used configurations for the developer's convenience.

Note: Linux binary packages are linked against glibc 2.28. If you are using a glibc version older than that you need to build Qt from sources or upgrade glibc to 2.28 or newer.

Exceptions

Individual modules might be available only on some platforms, or they might not support all configurations. For example, as Qt WebEngine has Chromium as a third-party dependency, platform or configuration limitations upstream also apply to Qt WebEngine.

The documentation for each module contains detailed information about any exceptions the module has from the general platform and configuration support as described on this page.

Deployment of Qt Applications

The deployment procedure for each platform is different and they are covered in greater detail in their platform pages. Meanwhile, there is a deployment article for summarizing the deployment procedure in general.
