Is it possible (and how) to use the SAGA GIS 7.x modules in QGIS (as well as for GRASS GIS)?

The inbuilt saga tool is locked to Saga's "long term support" release, which is stuck at 2.3.

Try the "saga Nextgen" plugin from the qgis plugins repo - it allows newer saga versions to be used (although with zero support, and a good chance of breakage!)


+/- one year later :
QGIS LTR now needs proj6 whereas SAGA needs to provide PROJ <= 5.x. SAGA 2 will not get support to PROJ 6.
