Yes that's exactly right. We will also be bumping up requirements on cairo and removing lcms 1 support shortly.

If your platform or distro doesn't support qt5 then either use the last revision of svn that supported qt4, or build qt5 yourself, or switch distro.

Take it as a good thing - forward looking changes and more active development!

Also, you should complain to your distros that do not support qt5, it been out for almost a year!
