The "LXQt" desktop that's a Qt version of the lightweight LXDE desktop can now be compiled using Qt5 where as previously there were still Qt4 dependencies.

The LXQt desktop has been porting their code=base over to Qt4 and now with the latest Git code the Qt5 code can be used, as a step towards Wayland support.

The LXQt 0.8 release is expected soon. More details at blogs.lxde.org.
