I didn't check, but 4.6-patched in kde-qt is after rc1, so its relatively
new. Whats really lagging behind (and thats the same in official qt) is
4.6-stable/4.6-stable-patched. I don't recall the exact definition of
-stable, but it might include the tier2 platforms and Thiago mentioned some
time ago that they have build-issues on one.

That depends on who you're asking. Qt devs will tell you to use Qt and
kde devs will tell you to use kde-qt. At least thats my experience.


Bridge ahead.  Pay troll.
