Qt 3.3.8b was a license change, when Qt was relicensed to include the GPLv3.

After that, we had the Nokia re-copyrighting, which hit the Qt 3.3.9 and Qt 
4.4.3 releases, which are identical to their previous ones. Qt 4.4.2 existed 
for just a few days before 4.4.3 was released with the new copyrights.

And after we had done that, we realised that we needed to re-release all 
previous versions again to commercial customers, so we added 4.3.6, 4.2.4, 
4.1.3, and then the "n" releases of the other patch releases (4.1.1n), etc.
