It would be certainly nice to link to this feature from the Qt Installer Framework documentation. For Qt Creator / Qt documentation, it's not clear to me in which depth this should be documented, since the functionality is not really specific to developers using Qt: People might as well use one of the other backends available in cpack, right?

To rephrase: Are there strong reasons apps using Qt + cmake should prefer the new ifw backend, compared to the other backends available?

Also, what's the time frame for CMake version 3.1.0 ? I don't want to add links to a yet unreleased feature ...
