Q../free 3.3.6-6 released

There is also some small bugfixing for Q../Free 3.3.x. We've ported a lot of platform dependend code back from Qt4 to our Q../Free and due to the Qt 3.3.6/x11 release we decided to make a new snapshot: http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=49109&package_id=42335

Patch for Qt 4.1.3 released

Yesterday we released a patch which works with 4.1.3. You can download it from http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=49109&package_id=165202

Qt 4.1.2 and 4.1.3 aren't compileable without qt3support on windows. The issue is reported to trolltech and will be fixed with the next release. A workaround is to replace Q_LLONG with qint64 in src\corelib\kernel\qeventdispatcher_win.cpp.

Additional compiler support for qpl'd Qt4.1/win32

I've uploaded a patch which adds additional compiler suppport for Qt4.1.
Currently we've some problems with borland support but this should be solved when the new C++builder 2006 is out.

If you've problems building qmake, please create directory <qt-4-src>\qmake\tmp

I've also added a new snapshot for Qtwin/free 3.3.5.

Qt3-cvs module moved from kde-cygwin to qtwin

Yesterday, the sf.net-people moved our qt3 - sources from kde-cygwin to qtwin. This step was necessary because kde-cygwin is closed down.
Don't forget to update your anonymous cvs settings.

No more binary releases for Qt3/free

Because of possible legal problems, we decided to provide no more binary releases of Qt3/free. But you can always get the latest cvs version. See http://kde-cygwin.sourceforge.net/qt3-win32/ for download instructions.

When you use this patch and encounter problems please *do not* ask Trolltech for help. Instead first try to reproduce your problem with MinGW which is officially supported and then ask Trolltech for help.... read more
