    Default Qt and future of the XML components

    Hi again,

    I'm going to start a new Qt project which heavily is based on XML and it's component, i.e XPath. However, I've read that most of XML components are now EOL status. What is means actually, are these components are going away at some point ?

    It means they are not going to be developed any further. Code will not be discarded so you can continue using it
    Your biological and technological distinctiveness will be added to our own. Resistance is futile.

    Please ask Qt related questions on the forum and not using private messages or visitor messages.

    XML is a very mature technology at this point. If you want an alternative, Xerces-C is available and works flawlessly in Qt projects. I read and create XML documents dynamically and use XPath / XSLT for filtering and processing.
