Is external C++ plug-in support available for QGIS?
I'm having a really hard time getting started here. I followed the doc here: http://download.osgeo.org/qgis/doc/manual/qgis-1.1.0_coding-compilation_guide_en.pdf
But that's fairly outdated. I was able to compile and link, but the plugin isn't being brought into QGIS - so I'm wondering if that tutorial is out of date.
When I go to the wiki page at QGIS's website - they reference a VERY outdated page that is identified as obsolete: http://hub.qgis.org/wiki/quantum-gis/Writing_C++_Plugins
I can't seem to find a current tutorial that describes C++ plugin support for QGIS 1.8 (or any version close to it). I realize Python is more pervasive, but at this point we have specific needs that are supported via C++.
