Documentation TODO

This is a list of items to do regarding the API / overview documentation of QtWebKit that we'd like to fix before the release:

  • Zero qdoc warnings
  • Review existing API documentation:
    • Widget plugins
    • Files (14):
    • Expand and combine sentences, adding missing \sa links, etc.
  • Ask the Qt support staff about things they're aware of that are bad or missing in the current docs.
  • Architectural overview (QWebView, QGraphicsWebView, QWebPage) - update existing diagram
  • Make sure that all new functions have the \since tag
  • Figure out how to expand \since 2.0 to "Since QtWebKit 2.0", or consider a \since 4.7 and \sinceqtwebkit 2.0

    • How to implement a desktop and a mobile/embedded browser
