Qt Digia, Qt's new owner, has announced the release of version 5 of the framework. "Key benefits of Qt 5 include: graphics quality; performance on constrained hardware; cross-platform portability; support for C++11; HTML5 support with QtWebKit 2; a vastly improved QML engine with new APIs; ease of use and compatibility with Qt 4 versions."

"qt3-support *is* Qt4, and is also part of Qt5"

technically, its qt3 libs bundled with qt4, which brings us back to my original comment about how we'll have qt3/4/5 dependencies with kde now.

Kind of a big, bloated mess, isn't it?

No, it is not technically qt3, look at the code and see how different it is and how many bugs were introduced by just making your qt3 app use qt3support in qt4 (if it was the same thing no bug would have happened)

But please, don't let reality spare you from trolling :-)

Yes. Someone can even go to and see... that it depends on Qt4 libraries, not Qt3.

From the official Qt FAQ from Gentoo (

qt3support [...] does in no way depend on Qt3. It contains classes that make porting Qt3 applications and libraries to Qt4 easier. They are Qt4 classes that emulate Qt3 behavior.
