    I must say my feelings have become mixed on this. Last I checked the meson Qt5 plugin was totally broken, and missing a _lot_ of features that Qbs (and QMake) have, but wouldn't it be better to concentrate the effort on improving it? Meson integration in Qt Creator is being done as a GSoC project this year.

      qmake, cmake, meson, qbs...

        To be fair, qmake and cmake are legacy, and qbs pre-dates meson by at least a year...

          I might not be a good example because I'm in no way a professional programmer... But I like qbs...

          I mean, at least it's nicely integrated into QtCreator and IMO, a modern build system should just take care of that...
          Anyway, I know I'm a lone voice in this.

              Another poor soul that drank the Gnome/RedHat kool aid.

                Exactly wrong. Qbs is not another competing standard, it substitutes QMake.

                  This was the case long before either of those companies moved from autotools... Certainly they further strengthened the case for modern build systems, particularly meson.

                    Yes, exactly how all standards immediately replace the preceding standards and no one will have to decide to continue using qmake or spend considerable amount of time converting their projects.
                    Anyone still know if there was a standard before the ubiquitous IPv6?
