    Phoronix: Qt Publishes A 2019 Public Roadmap: More Work On WebAssembly, Tooling

    The Qt Company has published a 2019 roadmap of sorts for areas they plan on focusing their resources this 2019 calendar year...

    Can't they use their time and manpower to invest into something more down-to-earth like Wayland and Vulkan ?
    Also I'm still missing the "Creation date" on my favorite DE, can't they add a wrapper function around functions that get this kind of date on each filesystem ?
    This WebAssembly seems to to me right now the same misuse of resources as Mozilla is doing with WebVR, something that will benefit only 0.001 of users, in my opinion.

      Why would Digia, which markets Qt, spend their time writing code for Wayland and Vulkan as opposed to the product they're selling? How is writing code for their own product not "down-to-earth"? This doesn't make any sense.

      WebAssembly frees the browser from the tyranny of Javascript. Qt is about a cross-platform UI and application platform. Many, many applications today are running in a browser. Adding WebAssembly support to allow Qt apps to target the browser is a logical, perhaps even necessary, step, and an exciting one.

        They already invest quite some effort into Wayland, which is understandable as they are also targetting Single-Use embedded systems. Vulkan currently does not offer too much benefit compared to modern OpenGL.

        You mean https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qfileinfo.html#birthTime ?
