If someone of Qt developers read this: please make sure that mirror system redirect only to the mirror servers that actually have the file. I'm in Vietnam right now and MaintenanceTool starting download from "mirrors.ustc.edu.cn" that just return "Not Found" error. Using VPN in different country helps to avoid it since it's using different mirror, but it's still annoying.

The most important part for me:

> I’m really happy to announce that we will now fully support Qt for Python, making all of the Qt APIs available to Python developers.

Yeah. Hopefully can make the switch from PyQt at some point. PyQt doesn't seem to get much love any more. Still worked well for my first bigger Qt project: https://github.com/borgbase/vorta/ (an open source GUI for Borg backup for macOS and Linux)

Also: Anyone noticed that the tab background (QTabWidget) disappeared in 5.11. Maybe it's back now.

I was waiting for the new TableView for Quick Controls 2. Nice!
