Is there a way that a recovered project view could show after a application crash? It would behave in a similar way a program like Adobe InDesign that will show the work file again after a crash, but it would still have those changes that were worked on. It would use the temporary changes since the last save that was made by the user.
Has there been a similar request made? I haven't found anything in a quick search.

I should also add that the project file name when opened after a crash should change to have "Recovered" added to it.

You already have a backup file (the file named ***.qgs~ next to your project)

In QGIS behavior, crashing does not necessarly breaks the project file, so we would need a conformity check of XML file on project loading raising a dialog to restore the project from the backup file.
