comment PyQGIS 2.0 API problem reading attributes
The dot notation of accessing attributes was added (by me) and then removed (by me) before the release. Because QgsFeature contains other methods using the dot notation for attribute lookup made it possible to mask built in methods. If you had a field called id and then did feature.id you could mask the id function. It made the API inconstant so I removed it.

QgsFeature has a _geo_interface_ property that exports GEOJSON with properties.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is on the wrong site for this question. This is a question for this patents.stackexchange.com/questions/5658/…

comment Show alternating contour lines
I will also add that if you can, try and have a column with just the elevation numbers as floats or integers. You can then use the mod % operator which is much quicker then a regex. "elev" % 10 = 0 will give you all the 10m lines.

@UffeKousgaard You might be able to do that but you would have to get someone to check.

comment Why are my symbols not displayed correctly in the legend and after a PDF-Export?
The first problem is just a limitation of the legend. Might be fixed at some stage in the future.

comment Rendering and Labeling Shapefile with PyQGIS
For a start you can't use iface outside of QGIS. That needs to be mapRenderer = QgsMapRenderer()

comment QGIS Advanced String Filter Expression returns too many results
You can also do this: "GNR" ~ '^.11$' which is a regex match and will force a string.
