That is good news! 

In https://wiki.qt.io/New_Features_in_Qt_5.13 it says Qt XmlPatterns would be deprecated.
Somebody in the interest list pointed me there.
Also I heard a lot (and it is written in the documentation) that Qt Xml should not be used
anymore, but the stream classes. If the state is "done", not "deprecated", there is no
reason for that!

Maybe this should be communicated and documented more clearly. Such news have a user side
impact like a nuke!

That document should be revised. It obviously is very important. How can you even do
strategical planing without such a fundamental document?
