As I said, this reminds me how a few years back you said Widgets was 
feature complete and thus maintained but no longer developed. I do know 
it's going to stay here and I mean *stay*, as in not move. None of the 
new hardware technologies Qt Quick takes advantage of would be 
supported, nor the remaining Qt Quick features I listed earlier.

I dare speak for the rest of us by saying we all know your supposed 
usage of Qt Quick. What I've been saying all along is such usage is 
quite crippled. I'm not sure if you understand how Qt's entire glory has 
grown around its cross-platform capabilities for native GUI. Because 
you're saying, it's OK if we don't have a modern GUI framework without them.

Ideally, I would feel happy to see some kind of commitment by the Qt 
team to (once again) make Qt Quick native on all platforms. As I 
suggested earlier, you could start by adopting that external project 
Jean Michelle linked to earlier in this thread. Yes, I remember the 
remark of this code not supporting GPU either but please remember my 
remark about this being just the first step.
