Qt Creator 4.9 uses KSyntaxHighlighting

As you can read in the official Creator 4.9.0 release announcement, Qt Creator now uses the KSyntaxHighlighting Framework for providing the generic highlighting.

This is a nice step for the wider adoption of this MIT licensed part of the KDE Frameworks.

And this is not just an one-way consumption of our work.

The framework got actively patches back that make it more usable for other consumers, too, like Kate ;=)

If you want concrete examples, take a look at:

I hope this cooperation will continue in the future. I thank the people working on Qt Creator that made this integration possible. I hope the initial effort will pay of with less code for them to maintain on their own and more improvements of the framework for all users.
