I have been loosely following the qbs development and it seems very
promising as a replacement for qmake. I am, however, wondering what the
developers' opinion is on its level of maturity. I understand that qbs
is still quite new, but I'm wondering what the general opinion is on the
qbs mailinglist as to its suitability for commercial applications. Is it
far off from being stable, are there major features missing/showstopper
bugs, or is it fairly stable and ready for use but just lacking some
advanced features? I ask because for our team's project timeline, we are
basically at a point where we can choose to use qmake or qbs for a new
project we are working on. What is the consensus? Have others made a
successful switch from qmake to qbs, or are people waiting for a later
version down the road?

Any input is greatly appreciated.
