My use case is SVG, that depends on XML - using vector graphics is
something we are doing since many years all the time. F.e our current
project uses > 1000 SVGs.
I remember, that there once was a page in the Qt docs that
explicitly recommended layouts + vector graphics being the solution to
make an application independent from the specific screen resolution.
F.e QSkinny is based on a class QskGraphic (
), what is a QPainter record/replay paint device - similar to QPicture
- that can be used like QPixmap/QImage, but for vector graphics.
Our instances if QskGraphic were initially created from SVGs using this
based on QSvgRenderer. Of course I could use a different SVG parser to
create the QPainter commands, but for what ...
So please don't consider removing SVG/XML - I would even suggest the
opposite: improve Widgets + Quick towards vector graphics.
