We only do patch level releases for Qt 4.8.x, and you usually don't change reference configurations in patch level releases. That's also why we e.g. still released Qt 4.8.5 with a completely outdated MinGW 4.4, which is actually quite hard to get.

Now one could of course add new binary installers to Qt 4.x. But honestly speaking, I don't think it's worth the resources and effort.
