    26 Since the 29th of August, 2009, the project is in '''Beta stage! ''' This means that the Qt library may be compiled and used to build non-difficult Qt applications such as examples or simple programs. There is a number of known and unknown limitations and bugs and the primary purpose of the Beta is to demonstrate the library and collect feedback from the users. If you are a developer, you are encouraged to download the latest source archive and try it.

    29 Please read the [http://svn.netlabs.org/qt4/browser/trunk/README.OS2 README.OS2] file for more information about the current limitations.
     26As of the 5th of February, 2010, the '''Qt framework version 4.5.1 for OS/2 is generally available! ''' This means that the major parts of the Qt library have been ported to OS/2 which makes dozens of Qt 4 applications potentially available to the OS/2 platform. The last release brought the complete Drag And Drop support, Session Management support, SQLite3 support, the Qt Designer application. Qt 4 for OS/2 is distributed in a convenient way using WarpIn packages which makes it very easy to install and use. netlabs.org maintains a so-called official build of the Qt 4 library which ensures that all Qt applications use the same set of runtime libraries which saves resources and improves general stability.  Below you will find download links to the available packages along with their descriptions.
