Qt 4 is no longer supported by the Qt project, but security
vulnerabilities continue to be discovered in it, and so we should not
add new packages that depend on it.

Apparently, LMMS can be built with Qt 5:

Can you try it and let us know how it goes?

Ok, I looked into this. Qt5 is supported only in the newest development
version of lmms, but what I packaged is the latest stable release.

I will make a note of this for when I update the package, but what can
we do for the mean time? Accept this as is? Package the release
candidiate? Or just wait for the next stable release of lmms before
adding this to guix?

To be honest, the RC looks like it has some cool new features, so I
will probably be building it for myself either way. Also, lmms is on
a pretty slow release cycle. The last stable was 2015, RC-1 was
early 2016, and RC-2 was Jan 2017. So maybe if it seems stable enough
when I build it I can package the RC-2. I could do one for each if that
makes sense, kind of like the guile and guile-next packages.
What do you think? lmms and lmms-rc?
