This release comes packed with improvements and bug fixes - in fact, over the last six months, 10000 bugs were squashed, 2000 feature requests handled, and 63000 changes were checked in by 700 people. We've already talked about this new release in quite some detail last week, but let's take a look at the most important new features anyway.

ATI driver have a problem with 4.3. Who is responsible is yet to be clear. About other resizing bug, as I said in that post, "normal" resizing protocol is time based, not direct. KDE3 and Gnome2 use(d) an hack to have pixel per pixel resize. It is not part of X protocol and is inofficial, but Qt 4.6 will support that walk around protocol. So it is not really Qt/KDE problem, but it is just how resize should behave on Linux, even if it look slow.

Part of software engineering is getting a desired out of sometimes suboptimal components. Sounds like they should have implemented the hack and the correct way to do it and used the build system to check if the proper way was supported.

It does not involve the build system, just the windows manager (WM) running the application, but yes, both can live together.
