Here are the results and brief summaries of the 3 QtQuick related
sessions, where we came up with some suggested new properties and
types for QtQuick.

Touch and Gestures:

No real solution other than handling Mouse, Touch, and Gestures
(system gestures, no gesture manager). Also looking into new grab
transfer mechanisms in QtQuick, such as a MouseArea.priority property
for automatic transfer.


Proposed new module, QtQmlGui (working title), which exposes non-core
stuff to QML but can be shared between QtQuick and other modules (like
Qt3D). Proposed new types, PolarPositioner, MouseRegion,

Declarative QML:

Proposed new property, deferredLoading, on Item, to solve the less
dynamic uses of Loader. Proposed new element, StateChange, to allow
more declarative state changing. Big solutions of pull bindings and a
pragma strictly-declarative are a lot of work, unlikely to occur soon.
