A test version of Anki built with the latest graphics toolkit and updated packaging is available. I’d appreciate it if you could give it a test and let me know if it runs correctly on your machine, and any regressions/improvements you notice.
- Windows 10 or 11 is required.
- The toolkit has reworked their graphics handling, which should theoretically offer better performance and compatibility. There is no option to choose the video driver anymore.
- Many add-ons are likely to fail to load with this test version, and you may be best off starting Anki with add-ons disabled.
- As this is a snapshot of the current development code, it also includes other interface changes such as the editor work Henrik has been doing.
- A generic icon is currently shown instead of the Anki icon.
- Anki will currently display a separate console window when it is run.
- The two main breakages are the renaming of PyQt5 to PyQt6 (you can support both by importing from aqt.qt instead), and the requirement that enums are qualified.
- If you’re using Qt Designer to generate UI files, the Qt5 and Qt6 versions need to be generated separately if you want to support both at once.
- The way Anki is packaged has changed. More of the standard library should be available by default, but it’s possible some libraries have not been packaged correctly - if something that used to work has broken, please let us know.
- Python has been updated to 3.9.
