Qt 4.2.3 and 3.3.8 Released

Trolltech has released version 4.2.3 of Qt. This is mainly a bug-fix release, with updates to numerous classes across all platforms. Changes include a new unofficial Portuguese translation, three fixes to lupdate including one which brings a 400x speed increase, and a fix to a bug in QTextEdit which caused the bottom lines to become unreachable after adding the scroll bar. Meanwhile Qt 3.3.8 has been released, quite possibly the penultimate in the Qt 3 line with support for Qt 3 ending in July. Get them from the Qt download page; both qt-copy trunk and branch have been updated in KDE's repository. For those wanting to live on the edge, documentation is now available for Qt unstable snapshots.


I'm like a kid at a candy store. I'm now reading several pages of change logs :-)

Thanks Trolltech!

A press release about Qt 3.3.8 came out in January but strangely the tar-balls were removed almost instantly from all download sites and reappeared only yesterday.

With support for QT-3* ending in July, and KDE-4 possibly/probably/will not be out by then, I need to ask the question:

Will KDE-3* (3.5.6 specifically) still compile with QT-4* ?

I ask since I use Gentoo and have had QT-4 masked from my machines for a while now since I thought (correctly or otherwise...) had no use for it at this time since I'm not using anything that needs QT-4*, that I know of.

No, kde 3.x will not compile with Qt 4.x.

Yea, I didn't think so, thus I have QT-4 masked on my machines since I have no need of it right now (and QT isn't the smallest package on the planet:


$ equery size qt
[ Searching for packages matching qt... ]
* size of x11-libs/qt-3.3.6-r4
Total files : 509
Total size : 25486.58 KiB


It's not *huge*, but...

Anyway, thanx for the reply.
