    \section1 Plugins

    As already mentioned, Qt Creator is basically only a plugin loader framework
    which gets its IDE functionality through plugins. The most important plugin
    is the Core plugin which provides all the basic functionality needed
    later to integrate e.g. editors or mode windows.
