Progress on Qalculate backend for Cantor

This is a follow-up of the previous post about the Qalculate backend for Cantor. Thanks to the work of Martin Kuettler, the backend is already in a pretty good shape for inclusion in SC 4.8. The majority of the supported extensions has been implemented.

In the screenshot below, you can see the “Variable Manager” in action, with a trivial example of unit conversion

Another extension that has been implemented is plotting.
Additionally, some calculus and linear algebra operations can now be done with the help of the GUI.
If you want to test, checkout the qalculate-backend branch from the Cantor repository.
And again, a big thank you to Martin for working on this!
