[Development] Qt 5.4 new features

Hi all,
Kindly reminder: Only one and half month to 5.4 feature freeze!

'Dev' branch will be locked 8th August 2014 12:00 CET and all new features for Qt5.4 needs to be in at that time!

Criteria for new features/modules (from Lars's old email):

Please make sure that all new functionality

- Compiles on all reference platforms
               (If a module/feature is only for one platform, make sure qmake/make does nothing on the other platforms)
- Have tests
               Automated tests should cover as much as possible of the new functionality. If certain areas are not covered by automated tests, I'd like to hear how testing will be done for those
- Have documentation
               No undocumented public API. Basic docs have to be there, only polishing should still be required after the freeze
- Have examples
               Have some examples showing how to use the API. Examples need to be linked to from documentation.

In addition, new modules need to

- Follow the branching scheme
               A new module can be ok to only have dev, with '5.4' being created at branching time.
- Have a CI system
               New modules that are going to be part of Qt releases need to have a CI system set up


Btw, http://qt-project.org/wiki/New-Features-in-Qt-5.4 seems to be quite empty still :(

Subject: Qt 5.4 new features

Hi all,

Now when Qt 5.3.0 is released it is time to start putting focus to Qt 5.4 as well. There is only a bit more than two months to Qt 5.4 feature freeze, which is planned to happen 8.8.2014, see http://qt-project.org/wiki/Qt-5.4-release

We need to get some kind of understanding which new features are planned for Qt5.4. That's why I ask you to update your plans in http://qt-project.org/wiki/New-Features-in-Qt-5.4
