I think this page needs an update.

Bazel is listed as an option on this page, but the compatibility matrix shows it is supported on a Best Effort (Maintenance Mode) and the latest version is only compatible up to CLion 2020.1 and even then only on Linux.  Our company is looking at moving to Bazel and first-class support on all platforms for this would be appreciated.

Also, 2020.3 released Qt projects and Makefile projects, right?

Qt project model (qmake) is not supported, it works via CMake.
As for Bazel, we do consider working on the plugin from JetBrains side, but no estimations so far.
