What version of Qt is that exactly?

The service we're using for automated build tests (and also automated
development builds) provides environments with VS2015 and various
versions of Qt5 starting from Qt 5.3 (currently 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6.2,
5.7.1, 5.8.0 and 5.9.2).

I'm using 5.9.? on Linux (latest as of a month ago) and 5.8.0 on 
Windows, because I already had it installed.
The only non Qt-4.8 feature I'm aware that I used is the close boxes in 
the tabwidget, so I believe any 5.x version should work.

To celebrate that I am working on my animation with qtpov, I have 
released version 0.1 on Windows and Linux (I am using the Linux edition).
http://www.buckosoft.com/qtpov/

Sure, there's still lots to do, but it works well.
I am to the point where I need to track my todo list; hi bugzilla.
http://www.buckosoft.com/qtpov/bugzilla

(clipka will be particularly interested in bug #2. ;)
http://www.buckosoft.com/qtpov/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=2 )

The big feature in this release is navigable SDL errors.
http://www.buckosoft.com/qtpov/errors/

and you can set filters on the povray console and the resource/filelist 
tree.

There is most of a Find/Replace system in place. (Find-in-Files and 
replace aren't done).

Bookmarks are cool.
Do they stick around when you close and re-open a file?

While configurable keys are good, the example you're showing already
highlights the drawbacks of the approach you (and too many other pieces
of software) are using: Why force users to choose between F3 and Ctrl+K
for the "Move to next find" function, when you could assign the function
to /both/ keys?

(And no, computer games' half-assed approach of providing /two/ key
bindings per function doesn't nail it. I'd love to see a genuine 1:N
mapping, as supported e.g. by Microsoft Word. Don't tell me Microsoft
can create better UIs than you ;))

But of course! My goal is, exit and restart and you are exactly in the 
state you left it.
The part I think is cool is it remembers the docking state and size of 
all of the windows/widgets.

Eclipse's bookmarks can get confused about the line they live on. I 
always gave them a pass on that. But after writing it, it's like a 
single 4 variable formula!
     if (bmLine > cursorLine)
         bmLine += newLineCount-oldLineCount;

I can create M shortcuts/keys and connect them to N functions.

At first I was thinking I need to see an example of a configuration UI. 
But I got something...

How dare you, sir!

I was gonna say, "Well, my goal is to make it work first, and then 
polish it".  but instead I'll go with

Sir! How dare you?

Now I have to do this stupid thing that only half interests me, when I 
would much rather select a block of text and type Ctrl-/ to comment it 
out.  (Or select text and type Tab and have it indent instead of 
replacing the selection with a tab. That's irksome... Stupid program.)

And for Ctrl-/ it made me realize; I never use the menus for 
Copy/Paste/Shift. But I do use the menus to see what features an editor 
supports and what hotkey it is. So I need to add a menu for 
Cut/Copy/Paste. Frowny face because I have to control it (Paste is 
dimmed if the buffer is empty.)

So long as you have a UI for a more sophisticated mapping firmly on the
radar, and are just keeping things simple for the beginning, I'm happy.

Advanced editing - indent/unindent blocks, toggle comments

Lots of menus (that do the same thing as the keys)

I needed a color_map.  Rather than spend 2 minutes typing
	color_map{[0 color rgb<1.0000, 0.0000, 0.0000>]
	          [1 color rgb<0.0000, 1.0000, 0.0000>]

instead I spent several days writing a colormap editor. :)
