Qt 5.6.2 recently released, is the second patch release to the long-term supported Qt 5.6, and there will still be more patch releases to come. While a patch release does not bring new features, it contains security fixes, error corrections and general improvements.
The Qt 5.6.2 patch release continues the quality and maturity focus of Qt 5.6, bringing close to 900 improvements on top of the already solid Qt 5.6.1 release. These bug fixes and improvements are also available in the later releases of Qt including the upcoming Qt 5.7.1 and 5.8.0 releases. Qt 5.6.2 is well suited for users that can not upgrade to a later version of Qt, for example due to dependency to C++98 compiler.
For details of the most important improvements and bug fixes in Qt 5.6.2, please check the change logs for each module.
If you are using the online installer, Qt 5.6.2 can be updated using the maintenance tool. Offline packages are available for commercial users in the Qt Account portal and at the qt.io Download page for open-source users.
