So, 2023 was a successful year for Qt - and we highlight the Qt 6.5 and Qt 6.6 releases, Qt World Summit, and Qt Contributor Summit.

Our community stays vibrant and engaged with the Qt Project through our forums, mailings lists, asking and answering questions, offering technical advice, reporting bugs, contributing patches, and in many other forms helping Qt flourish.

Our sincere Thank You! - you are the reason why Qt is so great!

We also take the opportunity to once again thank our  Qt champions 2023!

Let's keep improving Qt together!

And last but not least, we need to express our gratitude towards companies and organisations that are committed to The Qt Project and the open source values of transparency and collaboration.

Last year for example, we celebrated 25 years of the KDE Free Qt Foundation, and we are grateful to having  KDE as a great partner in our Qt history.

Qt is powered by a thriving ecosystem of individuals, organisations, companies and communities across the globe.
