Hi Mathieu,

thanks for your support for OSG/Qt integration. I think there are really
many people using OSG together with Qt.
Qt is just great for building multi environment user interfaces.
But there is one thing I don't really understand. There is some
discussion sometimes about difficulties in this integration.
My integration is dated April 2013 and I didn't need any changes since then.


It works without any problems with every version of Qt since that time.
So where is the problem?

OK, I'm not using VS 20xx but Qt Creator and g++ instead. Maybe that
makes the difference. But in this case
it isn't really a problem of Qt integration but a VS problem.
I see that some people tend integrating OSG into QOpenGLWindow.  In my
opinion this is a stony way
because Qt GL wasn't that stable and finally decided since many years
now. So things change frequently
and this is always causing headache for keeping integrations running.

On the other hand I think there is nothing more developed and stable
than QWidget.
If someone needs help send me a PM and I'm willing to share my
integration class.
