Release Digest: KDE, November 6, 2002

Summary The C++ GUI library upon which KDE is based.
Release Note Bugfix release. This release maintains both forward and
backward compatibility (source and binary) with Qt 3.0.5
(see the Upgrade Comment). Binary compatibility
: While Qt 3.0.6 is backward and forward binary
compatible with Qt 3.0.5, and is planned to be binary compatible
with Qt 3.1, Qt 3.0.5 is unfortunately not 100% backward binary
compatible with Qt 3.0.3 (a class got a few bytes smaller), meaning
executables compiled with 3.0.5 may not run properly when linked
dynamically to 3.0.3 at runtime. Note that this is not a problem on
MS-Windows. Due to its wide distributed in various GNU / Linux
distributions, TT has decided to stick with 3.0.5’s ABI. If you
ship dynamically linked executables, TT suggests putting a
QT_REQUIRE_VERSION macro at the beginning of your main function
(see the ChangeLog for details).
