Looks like the devs are using COVID-19 as an excuse to effectively make Qt proprietary software.

"last week, the company suddenly informed both the e.V. board and the KDE Free QT Foundation that the economic outlook caused by the Corona virus puts more pressure on them to increase short-term revenue. As a result, they are thinking about restricting ALL Qt releases to paid license holders for the first 12 months"

A year in the software world is eternity, may as well not release it.
