Hi Qt dev list.

I would like to ask you if there are any plans for providing Server Sent Event [1] signals in the QNetworkAccessManager.

The Server Sent Event (SSE) can be used by web pages that need asynchronous updates from the server (a kind of server push mechanism). It is very lightweight and is mainly used with HTTP.

It could be implemented by adding a signal to QNetworkAccessManager that delivers notifications.

Would you be interested in the integration of such a feature ?
