Well, even if we do nothing, we are breaking ABI. So, from my point of
view, this is a perfect time to do some API cleanup (all those
deprecated methods, faking virtuals with slots etc.)

Which doesn't mean there will be no development at all. I guess others
(and us) will continue developing those classes since (1) they are way
more mature than qml (2) a lot of code is written above them.

Do we need a big change? I don't think so - we are already fantastic :)


While you were hanging yourself on someone else's words
Dying to believe in what you heard
I was staring straight into the shining sun
