    Description

      underlined textSince the original harfbuzz [1] is more or less in maintenance mode, it will be interesting to explore the possibility of using harfbuzz-ng [2] as the text layout engine of Qt, finding out what's missing in current harfbuzz-ng to fulfill the needs of Qt is especially important.
