There is no roadmap to this level of detail. A few "must have" items are
usually mentioned on http://qt-project.org/wiki/Roadmap. Other than that,
there's bugreports.qt-project.org with reported issues and feature
requests. Ideas on what to implement next often start their life there.

For your problem, assuming this is something like

   vector<int> *vp;

with cursor at @, this works in current 2.8 branch.

   struct Foo { vector<int> *foo() { return new vector<int>(); } };

   int main() { auto xp = Foo().foo(); xp->@

also seems to work there.


PS: Usually the "hot" planning phase for release N is around string
freeze/release-candidate time of release N-1, which makes _NOW_ an
excellent time to discuss what should be up next.

PPS: Talking of good timing: This reminds me to remind everybody: String
freeze for 2.8 is looming: http://qt-project.org/wiki/Releases says "wk24
(~Jun 11)", i.e. tomorrow (or even today in parts of the world).

Let's fix that '~' to 19:00 CEST. After that, good luck with convincing the
translators one-by-one that you really need yet another string ;-)
