    QWidget based applications can't use that scenegraph.

    QWidget is the past. QML is the way to go.

    But generally, would you aggree that scenegraph is faster than native?

    Even raster is faster than "native" in many cases, there's a reason that raster is the default.

    Here's an interesting article about that http://kjellkod.wordpress.com/2011/0...sues-on-linux/
    Intel blames Qt for the fact that native is slower...

    It is matter of opinion whether QWidget or QML is better.
    QML is unacceptable if you want write your application in single statically typed OO programming language.
    Rewriting existing QWidget based applications to QML is unacceptable waste of time.
    Scenegraph can be possibly faster than native, if native is buggy and Nokia/Digia didn't bother to fix it.

    It is a fact though that QWidget is meant to be replaced by QML in long term. Sooner or later they will need to address those weak points - else, I could not imagine why QWidget should be depreciated in future.

    Thunar 1.6.x almost certainly will, thunar 1.6.x has already been released as stable. A lot of XFCE's applications aren't really strictly tied to the XFCE release schedule. Thunar 1.6 is already in a few other distros I've used (such as xubuntu 13.04)
