Hi Christian,

This is bad that Qt Team is not giving more resources to QBS project.  
QMake is out of date in many points and QBS is the good replacement.
1.5 seems to be planned on September, this is not so far away.
Whatever, we will wait and keep on using qmake for mobile project. These 
are small projects so qmake is ok.
