QSettings: write keys in INI files using UTF-8

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description

      Since Qt 6 the values in INI files are always read and written as UTF-8. There was a suggestion to implement the same for the keys.

      However, the keys always used %-escaped sequences for non-ASCII symbols, and never supported setting a codec.

      So such change in backward-incompatible.

      QTBUG-99401 implements reading keys in UTF-8, which may be useful for interaction with non-Qt applications.

      The scope of this task is to implement writing of the keys as UTF-8. This can be done as a part of some new major release.
