Hi all,

We are now starting to make snapshot builds for Qt 4.8.2 based on currently approved contributions. Please let us know (by sending email to releasing at qt-project.org) if there are critical contributions pending which should be definitely included into Qt 4.8.2 content.

To get a list of pending contributions to Qt 4.8, here's the link:


There are several pagefuls of contributions pending review. So, maintainers, 
do your duty :-)

Also, while reviewing Qt 4 contributions, remember to think about Qt 5. The 
contribution must either have landed in Qt 5 already and thus contain "cherry-
picked from {SHA-1 from Qt 5}" or it must have a good explanation why it 
doesn't apply to Qt 5. The best such explanation is "it's already fixed 
differently there".
