i think the code was fine building against 5.9 but they switched to a
new Qt feature that broke QtConnectivity against older QtBase and 5.11
was now required.
that's the only reason i did that switch.

digging for the exact feature...i cannot find it / i don't remember.

something else to note here, it seems that Alex hasn't merged the
`dev` branch in the `wip/win` branch in a while, so if the build fails
for you we need to ping him.

as said earlier, credit goes to Linus, as he fixed it by fixing the
support for the other DC (was it a Mares?).
