#309 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Provide i686 and pentium4 builds of Qt4 libraries

Reported by: Alex Taylor Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: Qt 5
Component: General Version: 4.7.3
Severity: low Keywords:


Our Qt4 libraries at present are only available (at least on public repos) for the i386 architecture.

It would be good to have builds optimized for i686 and higher, hopefully able to take advantage of newer processor's capabilities (and possibly improving performance)?

For Qt4 apps, the performance of the runtime libraries is something of a bottleneck. Building them for newer architectures might be one way of helping with this issue.

Milestone: Qt EnhancedQt 5

This will most likely not happen for Qt4, as we consider that a dead end. For Qt5 both arch will be built of course
