If is ok with you I'd like post an update on necessitas.kde.org where I want to warn people to move to Qt5 and that the project will be discontinued.

Yes, sadly google decided to break Ministro in newer andorid versions (5+) and no Qt4 apps will work on those versions, but there are still a few users that are still using Ministro (+600k) which most of them probably are using Qt4, so it will be nice if you'll keep Ministro's bins for a while.
