The API did not change, we have the same signals and slots as before. The old 
libs still link, because we have exactly the same object signatures as 
before. Therefore, it is binary compatible, but not source compatible. No 
need to wait for Monday.

Only connect statements break, which required some hackery until now, because 
you could not connect to threadweaver objects without being in the namespace. 
The change was absolutely necessary. I understand that it sucks. 

It would have been more on target if you said "how did this slip through until 
now, you moron?" :-)
