      Description

      I think the QPointF class should provide a static function to compute the distance between two points. It is very unintuitive to call QLineF(p1,p2).length() just to get distance between two points.

      Instead something like 

       

      static qreal QPointF::distance(QPointF const &p1, QPointF const &p2)
      

      should be provided. As a bonus, a "distancesquared" function could also be included.
