V0.5.3 ported to Qt5 (Experimental)

Hi all,

I ported the ppcoin v0.5.3 client to Qt5.
I did this because it might help [member=30983]peerchemist[/member] to compile it for OSX.

The client seems to compile, run and connect to the network successfully.
However it is not tested in depth, so use at your own risk!
I’ll keep it updated with future ppcoin releases.

Here it is: https://github.com/hrobeers/Peershares/tree/ppcoin-master-qt5

I don’t expect this to be merged into the reference client as it is not risk free.
But I’m happy to help if the dev team plans to migrate.


Nice work! :smiley:

I just successfully made 2 transactions using this Qt5 port.
Everyting seems to be working fine!

What main new features does Qt5 have?

Here you can find the main new features: http://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qt5-intro.html

It really doesn’t matter for the ppcoin client. The port was also quite simple.
But I was told that Mac doesn’t support Qt4 apps anymore, so I ported it.
However, it doesn’t really seem to matter.

I’m just posting this if anyone needs a Qt5 port for some reason.
I’ll keep the branch up to date and use the Qt5 version as my wallet.
