Funding of Qt 4 Project

February 08, 2010 by

The Qt 4 project aims to make the latest Qt 4.x available for OS/2 and eComStation. For this purpose, Dmitry A. Kuminov was hired, who had already ported Qt 3 to OS/2. After several months of work, the GA version of Qt 4.5.1 has just been released.

Further maintenance and enhancements are planned. Moreover, an update to version 4.6.1 is considered. Realization will, however, depend on availability of funds. The detailed project status, history, and roadmap are available at:

The project was mainly funded by donations from members of the OS/2 and eComStation community. However, not all of the cost have been covered so far (93% as of writing) and more funds are required. A donation meter for the port of Qt 4.5.1 is available at:
