Hello Dominik

I think the idea of having API wrapping some of GENIVI's functionality is 
good. How soon will you begin working on the CommonAPI?

But I can't give a +1 right now for the API you have of DLT. That looks like 
something Qt should automatically be doing. Have you explored that 
possibility? Can you explain why it shouldn't / couldn't be done like that?
