Picard is going to be receiving a complete make-over code/feature/UI wise for v2.0. A part of the v2.0 plans is porting the existing code to PyQt5/Py3 to allow for future support and better encoding compatibility along with new features of Qt5(such as High DPI scaling, better widget and networking support and better cross-platform compatibility) and along with all the bug fixes that come with PyQt5 which will help clean up the code-base for Picard.

This GSoC proposal aims to do a bare port of the Picard to Py3 and Qt5 along with setting up the foundation for v2.0. The port will be based off stable v1.4.1 code.
