Some of them are actually much older:

The whole point of a manual test is for things that can't be reliably tested 
in an automated way. Take two examples: QSysInfo and QStorageInfo. There are 
some aspects of both classes that can be tested in an automated way, like the 
consistency of results, but most of it can't. So we have manual test tools 
that allow us to quickly get all the output from those classes and see if 
there's something unexpected, compared to other tools and system 

Ditto for highdpi.
