<toc-add-entry name="qt5">First Qt 5 packages in experimental</toc-add-entry>

Lisandro Damián Nicanor Pérez Meyer announced that
<a href="http://perezmeyer.blogspot.it/2013/04/on-road-to-qt-5-qt-5-base-tools.html";>the
first Qt 5 packages have been accepted in the experimental suite</a>.
For now they are available only for the 64-bit PC (amd64) architecture, but soon they will be
also in the 32-bit PC flavour as well. As for the ARM based ones, it will take a bit more time.
These packages have no GLES2 or Wayland support, but
non-official packages with GLES2/Wayland enabled will be provided at some point, for testing
<br />
As for future plans, Lisandro said that <q>other parts of Qt 5 are on the way. And remember, 
this packages would not have been possible if it weren't for the great Debian's pkg-kde team</q>.
