Qt 3.3.5 Released and "A Qt Blog"

Trolltech has released Qt 3.3.5, a new maintenance release to the Qt 3.3 series which incorporates over 200 bug fixes as well as support for new platforms. In related news, a new website "A Qt Blog" has been started whose goal is to summarize happenings in the Qt and KDE worlds.


Nice to have steady updates of Qt3! Looking forward to meeting it in debian :-)

Does anybody know if this version includes the patch for gcc symbol visibility?
The changelog says nothing about it.

It doesn't, but the old patch works just fine on 3.3.5. If you're compiling with gcc 4.x though, bear in mind that Qt now "officially supports" this compiler, which breaks the binary buildkey versus 3.3.4 (previously it would have been called "g++-g++ 4.0.1 <-V spiel>", now it's called "g++-4".

As a result I had to rebuild kdelibs (3.5-alpha1) to get things to play nice.

I downloaded and compiled qt-3.3.5 but it is showing error with "gmake install", the error is "Cannot stat /tmp/qt/lib/", the kdebase 3.5svn package needs to compile, i compiled qt with -shared, so what's wrong? do i need to compile qt with "-static"? thanks.

I don't think '-shared' is needed. I think '-thread' is needed for multi-threading (mt)

It says:
- QPSPrinter
Generate PS font names correctly.

They fixed the bug (I hope).

IAC, don't try my patch for 3.3.3 on it.

I haven't tested it yet, but I hope that it works.
