Qt After many months of designing, coding, reviewing, testing and documenting, Qt 4.7.0 is finally ready for the big time. Although it's a little more than nine months since Qt's last feature release (4.6.0 on December 1, 2009), the seeds of some of the new stuff in 4.7 were sown much earlier. Indeed, many of the ideas behind the biggest new feature in Qt 4.7.0, Qt Quick, were born more than two years ago, not long after Qt 4.4 was released

rekonq uses qtwebkit(ships with qt) and it is very crash happy. Hope the crashes are coming from qtwebkit and they are fixed in this release. I like the browser but i switched back to firefox because it was crashing waaay too often.

qtwebkit also uses phonon to handle html5 media elements and hence should be able to handle all codecs phonon backend media player can handle. I use xine backend and xine can play h.264 so i have support for the codec but rekonq simply wouldnt play html5/h.264 videos. It played theora just fine. Hope the fix is in this release too. On my way to compile it and test.
