|Qt 4.7 (0.9.0) is finally here! The package includes support for webkit, |
systrayicons, improved native rendering, and many other things (see readme

Because of the size of the archive, Qt is no longer available from os4depot.

Instead follow this link to download from sourceforge:
On top of that, here are some nice stand alone apps, that uses the new Qt
Maybe this is the first time, that AmigaOS actually has a fully featured
musical score WYSIWYG editor (correct me if I'm wrong )! This was one of my
main goals from the beginning when starting the Qt port, since I am a
musician myself and need this kind of software. Check the documentation and
the readme file if you are not sure how to use this software.
A nice, feature rich jabber client, with support for multiple accounts and
many other things:
Advanced text editor, with context highlighting, a nice friendly GUI and
other cool stuff. See notes in the readme file.
A feature rich wallpaper changer with lots of modules for Google,

OK, if you made it this far in the news post, here is where it gets
exciting! I hereby declare
THE ACUTE AND COMPLETELY INSENSIBLE CHALLENGE
for open! What is that?! you ask. Here it is: From today and until August
30th the challenge will be, that whomever is able to port the most Qt apps
or make actual new apps using Qt, will win an excellent and quite intriguing
price! The requirement is, that the apps shall run on both my X1000 and my
SAM (not my A1200 ). I will be available most of the time to help anyone in
need (i.e.. if there are some insurmountable problems with the current Qt
impl.). Points will be given according to the hardness of the task, that is:
a more difficult port will get more points. Also homemade apps will rate
higher than ports.
So get your baby fingers ready to spew out some code, and please have as
much fun as you can .
