Well, people were quick to point out in that mailing list thread that PySide is not dying.yorik wrote:Oh boy... now pyside dies??? After all our effort?
So as an alternative to switching to PyOtherSide, PySide might still be an option with the above-mentioned porting effort.The CY2016 Platform is a work in progress, feedback is still welcome and will continue to be addressed until August when the final CY2016 Platform will be published during SIGGRAPH. The major change for CY2016 is a move to Qt5 which requires a port of PySide and modifications to vanilla Qt to resolve issues that impact some DCC tools. The Working Group's aim is for this modified Qt to be available to anyone who wishes to target the CY2016 Platform, and for all major software vendors to build their CY2016 releases against the same modified Qt. More details will be shared in due course.
