Suggest querying all unresolved tasks assigned to you for 5.0.0 Beta 1, sorting them by priority and then start working from the top of the list.

Most of those tasks were created by yours truly, so feel free to contact me if you disagree with the priorities that I've set on the tasks.

The weird versioning of libicu is the primary reason.    Qt-project packages currently target 11.10 and 12.04 (with separate 32 and 64 bit packages).

Incidentally, the Digia-generated packages appear to target Ubuntu 11.10 but seem to have been built on/against Ubuntu 11.04 -- at least that's what's implied by the warning messages about libicu when launching the installer.
