Kate Highlighting for QML, JavaScript

Hey everyone!

I’ve started my internship at KDAB this week, it’s great fun so far! Though I spent most of my time this week on Bertjans KDevelop plugin, I couldn’t resist on a bit of Kate hacking:

steveire is experimenting with QML so I couldn’t stop but notice that there is no highlighting for it in Kate. Well, there was none ;-) Now you get pretty colors, rejoice!

Note: Since QML is basically JSON with some added sugar, I reused the existing JavaScript highlighter and improved it. Hence you get imrpoved JSON and member highlighting in plain.js as well. Enjoy!
