- * It is no longer possible to use Q_DECLARE_METATYPE(Foo*) where Foo is only
- forward declared - it must be fully defined.
+ * Q_DECLARE_METATYPE(Foo*) now requires that Foo is fully defined. In
+ cases where a forward declared type should be used as a metatype,
+ Q_DECLARE_OPAQUE_POINTER(Foo*) can be used to allow that.
