 Replying to [comment:2 mark-kendall]:

 > As you say, OpenGL will be around for a while.

 With Apple, there is no way to know if OpenGL/OpenCL will be removed in
 10.15 (and iOS 13) or not until 10.25.  Every WWDC will have some people
 listening intently to see if this is the year.

 > Without Qt support for Metal

 In addition to some of the experimental MoltenVK support in Qt 5.12, there
 was some initial Vulkan support in Qt 5.10.  There is also a mesa based
 project to support OpenGL on Vulkan (called Zink), so one possible path
 forward might be OpenGL via Zink using MoltenVK on Metal.  Most of that
 code is in various stages of a work in progress rather than considered
 production ready, but it does seem that there may be a way.
